I recently acquired this Apple G4 Cube computer shell after I saw a couple of these repurposed into aquariums. Basically the computer was removed and a piece of acrylic was glued to make a base. I thought it looked good beside my iMac. Once you go mac you never go back.
I also recently acquired this beautiful betta from Thailand called "Fire and Ice". I've never seen one with such iridescent fins before. I used a glass substrate as I plan on getting some color changing LED's to put in the open space under the bottom of the tank. I have some Hornwort in there for now but am going to try planting in this glass to see if I can get anything to grow. The glass gravel is made from recycled glass and since I'm also recycling a computer case this is a "green" aquarium. I plan on adding a small internal filter next week. I think I'll name the betta "Mac".

Don't worry, I will have a filter in there in a couple of days.
Honestly, I've kept alot of bettas in small set ups, and one gals even filtered invariably led to some fin issues...and once they go bad, they never recover as nice. I think if you planted heavy w/ CO2, that would be your best bet for long term success in a tank like that. You probably paid $70+ with shipping for a fish like that...quite an investment.
