Thank you, he does, in a way. My sister loved bettas too, she had two of them. Just days before she died, she saw a picture of mine on Facebook and commented that he would look nice with her black one... and asked where his long tail went lol! Unfortunately her bettas got left behind. I couldn't take them on the bus back home with me. I changed their water and wished them the best before I left. I did take her cat, though.

This was me rescaping this tank today-



Anyways I wanted to go with something hardscape-less because my betta likes to move things around and I didn't want him getting hurt on a rock or branch. So there is a bit of HC (which will probably die) and some other boring stem plants. Maybe it will grow in nicely. I will post pics in a bit

Here we go -



I wish I had a real camera. Anyways there's some HC in the front, e. tenellus, downoi, and crypt parva in the mid, and some bacopa, lobelia cardinalis small, and l. repens in the back. Everything is all bent and crooked from floating for a few days when my 10g started leaking. Hopefully it straightens up soon.

Nah, sorry. Stock light isn't really strong enough to grow anything, most of the plants look like crap and the tank is going through a diatom outbreak. I can't afford a new light right now so it's just hanging on in the meantime. All my downoi died and I'm a bit bummed.

Thanks :'( It will be greatly missed. Stuff melts like ice cream in Death Valley.

I am going to do some fiddling in the tank tonight. I'll post pics after.

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

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...

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.
