Default Mr Aqua 3 Gallon Betta Tank (tragedy and advice needed, see last post)

So my Betta (The Dude, or Mr Grump Pants) got bumped out of his Fluval Spec V and has been living in a large planted vase. He quite obviously hated it. Only betta I've ever had that likes current, he's half moon so pretty small fins, swims like a champ and really likes a real tank with some moving water. Much less Grumpy Pants.

So I found a Mr. Aqua 3 gallon bow front on Amazon for cheap, grabbed an HOB filter and set it up today on the counter. One piece of driftwood, a couple rocks to hold some anubis nana, some needle leaf crypts and a java fern and he's all settled and telling me who is boss.

It is a lovely little aquarium, was very affordable. Frameless, the front glass is bowed AND bevel cut, all around very nicely finished. Looks good sitting on the counter.

The light is a hallogen desk light. The plants have been under it for a couple weeks in the betta jar and seem to like it just fine. So unless they start acting stressed I'm going to keep it instead of buying yet another Finnex Ray!

Mr Grumpy Pants, now less grumpy and back to The Dude:
