Cool

FWIW, she was thrilled and proceeded to name her betta "rain" because he is blue

Default Started yesterday, one gallon no filter...

Here is the story:

Once I got my planted tank going, a family member gave the grandson one of those horrible plastic 'Nemo' tanks. Inadequate light, fake plant, and blue glass marbles. *sigh*

After a few weeks, I decided the Betta deserved a better home. I KNOW some of you will think this is too small.

Inspired by this thread:

Driftwood, play sand, five species of plants (duckweed, Bacopa, Pennywort, pondweed and lindernia), lava rock and river stone. Oh, and a red Betta named McQueen.



One root tab under the sand.

Cute male in pink
I would be a bit concerned about the lava rock: they tend to be rather sharp. One day, a startled McQueen might get beached...

Default Betta bowl upgrade

Our betta seems so pensive in the candle jar that I felt bad enough to go to TJMax this weekend and get him a larger candle jar!

This one measures a bit more than a gallon and stands 7.5" tall x 7" wide and is still no-tech, just next to the window (does not get direct sunlight)

Just set these up yesterday. I didn't do a journal because I didn't really see the point. They're finished. Snails will soon appear I'm sure and that's fine. I like snails. I'll probably put a nerite in the larger one.

I have a feeling I'm going to hate cleaning the substrate-level glass on the larger one especially.

Larger vase: About half a gallon I guess. Plants are bolbitis and anubias along with floaters (thank you OVT ). I'll be adding more anubias ASAP as this is kind of bare. Rocks are from landscape place and sand is a little bag from Lowes (it's awful to rinse!). Light is a spiral daylight.

Small vase:
Plant is pennywort. Sand is same as above (did I mention it was heck to rinse??). Light is sunlight off and on in NE windowsill. This one is maybe a pint. I mixed in tiny bit of osmocote in substrate.
