The betta bowl.

My girlfriend and I wanted a betta bowl, and this is what we ended up with.

23liter Loov curved glass tank
Fluval Nano underwater filter
Cobalt 15w heater
Kessil A80 tuna sun
Varzea CO2 Pro Set

Plants;
Marsilea hirsuta
Alternanthera reineckii
Eleocharis belem

Livestock;
Trichopsis pumila 3
Betta imbellis will be here this week

A couple rocks, some soil, and some sand. I have a piece of manzanita that doesn't want to sink, so it's sitting in a bucket. I've had it up and running for about a month now.

The fish will not be shipped until tomorrow instead of last Monday, so still waiting. Plants are growing nicely. My manzanita has been floating for around a month, and doesn't seem to want to sink still. Considering giving up on that idea.

Removed some plants to make room for something else. Maybe rotala? I haven't decided yet. Still waiting for fish to arrive. Should be here by tomorrow.

I added a solenoid to the CO2 regulator so it's automated now. I upgraded to a DOOA CO2 diffuser. I have a few pieces of java fern floating around just to see what happens, and I added a rotala garden on the right. Sadly, the betta arrived Saturday, and Saturday night found a small hole in the acrylic lid and hopped out. I decided I will stick to less expensive fish for now, so Sunday I added a trio of celestial pearl danios.

Added a new betta a few days ago. All the other fish are still doing well. I moved a week ago, everyone survived the move, but I had a small algae issue before, that got pretty bad after the move, I think it had to do with co2 diffusion, I increased co2 bubble count and it seems to be getting better slowly. I will get a drop checker eventually so I can get it dialed in better.
