That tank looks gorgeous. How well does your Siamese Fighting Fish (Betta) do with your other fish? I've got a small community in a 10 Gallon that I started last month. Any suggestions?

Hi Aqua student Thank you for your comment. The Betta's (I have 2 pairs in the tank) are very friendly to other fish in my tank. She loves swimming and my Crytocorine cordata plant `s Hygroryza aristata. The roots of the H. aristata Betta `s he needs is for" Hide and Seek. "For the swimming Hygroryza aristata plant `s, you need an " open tank" without cover. The floating plant fault otherwise because of the condensation. Another plant you can take to swimming is Ceratophyllum demersum. This water plant is a very easy to hold. I hope I could help you a little bit. Gerhard See you later terminator

The lighting depends approximately 40 cm above the water surface. I wanted a natural environment for my animals, with a "country part" and real plants. My submerged plants bloom The LED lighting is controlled by a daylight simulator and timers. So I have morning a sunrise and a sunset evening. 1 year is the LED lighting business and I am very happy with it.
