Shurbert is still spoiled as ever, being fed 5-10 omega one pellets once every other day, and bloodworms on Fridays! Thanks for tuning in and I will see you all soon!

I have a 2.5 gallon for a betta too, I just started mine on live plants, before I was just using plastic. My doesn't look nearly as amazing though, hopefully it will look good like yours one day too. I love Shurbert coloration, such a nice orange!

Shurbert went in the spec downstairs, and this is what replaced him a 99 cent betta from petsmart

Hey, you said that you don't have CO2 in the tank right now. Did you know that you can make an AWESOME CO2 reactor with the filter you have right now? It diffuses better than a lot of glass diffusers, and it's very small. Here's how you can make it:

Your tank looks really cool!

Considering removing all floaters from this tank, there certainly are enough plants in the tank to use up all the light I'm giving anyway.. Any remarks?
