My wife's first effort

My wife just set up this nano for her betta. I was pretty impressed.

It's nice, but way too small for the betta

i would take a little bit of soil out of there and fill it up some more to give the betta some more swim room. if you have heard that bettas can live in a puddle well they can't. but none the less, it looks awesome. i love the long plant in the back. what kind of lighting do you use?

You need to do some research. Yes they can survive in a puddle.

It is very lovely.

As long as the water is kept clean, Fish and Sea, that is the prime issue for a betta.

5g is fine for a Betta. To me that tank is too small, nice but too small.

Additional info on her first attempt

Thanks for the feedback everyone. The container is probably about 2 gallons, but we have a Fluval in tank filter concealed in the back, so it isn't your typical betta bowl. The tall plant is Acorus calamus or Sweet flag. She also has a BioOrb with a pair of rams in it, but you can't really plant one of those because of the way the filtration was designed. I'm just trilled to death that she has taken an interest in the hobby. <wringing hands> Now to get my 125 paludarium set up!

Very nice, I like it and I am sure the Betta does as well.... I can't tell for sure but that looks similar to some glass I used for a betta tank a few years back... one afternoon I came home to wet carpets and the betta sitting in less than an inch of water.... the side walls had come loose from the bottom think peice of glass... I thought it was all made as one piece when I bought it and couldn't tell that it wasn't until it cracked...
