Haven't posted about this tank in a while!
It's nothing but a stunted amazon sword and some c. parva, but here's some pics.

exactly... ya I am debating a betta alone or cpd's or chilli rasboras both of which would include shrimps
well I have plenty of time to sit on the decision as my tank cycles all month long

|Jaguar||I would love to do something like chili rasboras, CPDs or even endlers and a couple shrimp! It is tough to decide. I went for a betta because I love their personalities His tank is right beside my desk and he's fun to watch.|

I put a ball valve in the filter hose and have it almost shut so the flow is REAL mild at the moment...
I am still debating about getting a betta (crowntail) or going with shrimps and a few nano fishes....... ugh it is hard to decide

I do think my betta really enjoys the Spec. It's true they're not the best because they are small and mostly vertical space. They might be better for plakat or female bettas since long fins might get blown around or caught in the overflow. My betta's favorite thing in the world is resting against the overflow. I can see him hanging out there right now! I would love to get him a Mini M but that'll have to wait :P
You'll probably have to do some mods since the filter is so strong. I turned the filter down to low and stuffed the overflow area with filter floss. That lowered the flow enough for my plakat, but for a long finned you might want to cut some slits in the return hose. I also had to pull my hardscape out because my betta kept wedging himself behind the rocks and I was paranoid he was going to end up getting hurt or stuck and drown

|GMYukonon24s||Nice tank and beautiful betta|

|Jaguar||Aw that's nice of you but don't worry about it. I am going to put an ad up in the SnS eventually looking for an old Flora/Ebi light or something, and in the meantime keep looking on Fleabay and Amazon for lights.|

|smirkis||upgrade that light! i had mine for a month and pretty much lost all my plants. the fluval 13w is dirt cheap on fleabay and its brand new. 27 shipped. it'll save you from rescaping every few months lol. beautiful fish and tank btw|

Awww that's a happy looking betta...I'm liking the new scape! As for your light, have you looked at other lights for your Spec?
I've seen a few Specs with this light. Its available here in Australia LFS. But I dont know about Canada... its called:
60 x LED Blue & White LED "ipower" Aquathrive Aquarium Light Units NANO TANKS, its about $20 Aus here...

Rescaped the tank. Got needle leaf java fern and e. tenellus in the back and some crypt parva in the front.
Noticed 4 LEDs on the light are burnt out. Going to contact Fluval. I know it's a relatively common issue but I've only had the tank for 5 months...
It's very very hard to take photos of a crazy betta with an old iPhone camera... I desperately need a real camera
