Talking My Betta

I got this betta the other day from a local breeder!

He is in a 7 gallon tank (with heater and filter coming)

I was told this tank was made in Denver and is about 30 years old. Anybody know about this?

He is a Halfmoon.

He likes to hangout at/near surface. One day i hope to get him a lady!

are the plants plastic? they can damage his fins if they are, and HMs are prone to fin damage as is.
replace them with live ones.

Yea they are I just put in live horn root and moss.

I thought is was custom. I was told it was made by a company here in Denver. He also said he has a 30 gallon made by the same company that has a self leveling bottom.

Hopefully I get a bubble nest!
