Found an amazing deal for a Fluval Spec $30 at PetCo over Black Friday. It was marked as "Discounted for Quick Sale" and wanted it. Thinking about setting up either a nano-reef or a Peacock Gudgeon breeding tank. Still not totally sure yet?
This is jut the current list of all the tanks I have/will be setting up by New Years.
- 38 G Community Tank
-10G Invert Tank
-Fluval Spec V
-5 Gallon Dorm Tank
-Various 1g bowls for bettas

Started my first year of college a couple of weeks ago. Both of the tanks are still up back at home being taken care of by my family. I come home every couple of weeks to clean the tank but other wise it is fairly maintenance free. I have a BN pleco and a SAE helping out in the 38G while I have three Otos in my 10G shrimp tank.
I'm not technically allowed to have big tanks at college but manage to speak to my RA to let me have a small 3G betta tank.
Im using a Riparium planter that I saved from when I tried it with my 10G. I'm using it to minimize the amount of nutrients in the tank since it's so small. The betta seems extremely happy and has even made a bubble nest today. There's a small filter in the tank. I need to get a heater for the tank soon as it is starting to get cold but I may end up switching this to a Fluval Spec later on since I don't wanna mess with a plastic tank and a heater problem.
His name is Alpha Betta (Black Body & Red Halfmoon Betta)
Will upload pictures of the other tanks when I come back home soon! Thanks for reading!
*Also planning to add a couple swordtails to the tank and removing both a Gourami and a GWK since they get aggresive with their species.
