Well, if you turned it into a walstad tank, i think you could get away with shrimp. Youd need to up your plant mass though! IMO smaller tanks look so much better filled with plants! Have you tried shrimpies with your betta?

That's a sweet looking betta. Love the fin w/ the red streaks. Normally I'm not a big fan of elephant ear fins, but this one is quite an exception!

I love this tank! I'm torn between this tank and regular 2.5 gal.

I have Deep Blue's 3 gallon long for my betta.

Just for future reference, the maximum water capacity for this tank with filters and all that jazz is 2.5 gallons, but it is a 2.3 gallon tank.

I love the way it looks though!

I had a huge problem arise a couple days ago. i put a pump into the tank to get some circulation. and it seems that i didn't wash the sand enough and it kicked up a huge amount of dust over night. to the point were i couldn't see more then an inch into the tank. so i did a huge amount of water changes and rescaped the whole tank to be viewed from all sides. the tank sit at the end of the desk so it is seem from all over the room. i wish there wast ad much sand in the tank but nothing i can do now. im not going to try to rescape it for a third time. i dont think the plants with like that too much haha. but heres how its sitting now.
