Awww, what a shame. I hope the plant manages to recover.

Keep up with the betta pics tho! Love that guy!!!
I'm sure anxious to put my boy is his tank. Usps has been an annoying brat and currently my last plant pakcage for his tank is mia. Id rather get it all planted and such before I put em in.

Anubias is tough! I think it'll pull through. The mother plant in my other tank is covered in BBA I got it from my LFS before I really knew that is was bad.
The one thing I found with my guy is he LOVES the floating water sprite. So I would say as long as you have some surface cover and it's cycled put him in! (if you can get water sprite I highly suggest it)

Thanks! The betta really loves the plants and how much there is. He runs around trying to squeeze through every space and finds nice places to rest

I'm curious how that heater is working out for you. Its the tetra one, no? I have two on two of my nano tanks, and since it keep the water at like 78 degrees I was thinking it would be a touch too cool for a betta. Of course, your fish looks great. Im just a little confused is all, I guess.

Well when the cold MA weather started drifting in, I noticed it was dropping to 72-74 on the far side of the aquarium. Not acceptable for my little guy. I didn't want him to take an immune system hit so I purchased a petco adjustable, I think 50 watt. Now it stays at 78-80. I may even kick it up a bit

The frogbit TOOK OVER. The betta was clearly disliking the fact that he couldn't get to the surface at all. I took about 3/4 out and did some root/anacharis trimming.
It's amazing how excited he is. He's opening his fins so much wider. He is happy.

Also, I could see how my plants were suffering because of the lack of light. I'm hoping things will perk up a bit now that it's shining through.

updates: added betta log (christmas gift hit) took out the dying water sprite and put in Myriophyllum mattigrossense. planning to clear out the left side and move the anacharis to that place, but will tackle that next week.
