I can't stop!
My youngest son got a betta for the holidays. It is currently in a tiny (maybe half gallon?) bowl. I'm taking the opportunity to give him some more space and more plants.
The first layer is organic potting soil (brown bag). Nothing I had was the right size to sift this stuff to get out the wood... so it stayed in.
The cap is course black sand from the local pet store. Rinsed and laid on pretty thick.
I would like to try to get a couple shrimp in there with the betta, so I'm going to be giving TONS of hiding spots. Hopefully I can get some plants this weekend. I really don't have much in terms of availability here except petco.
Hopefully I'll be able to find some Nana and some Valesneria.
