what do you use to keep the water from getting stagnant? I have a 2gal cookie jar that just looks like a murky roadside puddle :/

Looks great! I really wouldn't mind setting something like this up when i move. Do you just use a desk light or something that hangs above?

Today i moved the rock over a little bit as suggested by some people, i think it def helped the look of the tank a bit. hoping once the hydro take root it will take off as it has in my 10g! could look really nice in this tank.

Fin came out of his hiding spot to pose for a late night picture
its quite funny how bettas always jam themselves into a spot and just sleep or rest or what ever bettas do when they just chill for a long while haha. and they always go back to that same spot like its a bed! both of my bettas do it

Beautiful little tank.

Though, it looks more like Deep Blue Professional's 2gal unit rather than the 3gal. What are the tank's dimensions?

That's just under two gallons.

It's possible that the 3 refers to the three compartments the tank can accomodate.

You know, I really think the rimmed tanks wouldn't be so bad if the rims weren't so thick. If they only came down equal width of the silicone seams then it would create a much better impression on the tank. Giving it a "bold" effect, so to speak.

On topic:

This tank rocks. So simple yet executed very well.
