Whoa, very nice! Looks like a little jungle cove. I love it, it gives me some great ideas for a betta tank I'm working on. What are the specs? What kind of plants do you have in there? I see some snails, what kind? Any other critters in there?
Don't mean to ask so many questions but I'm new to planted tanks and yours is the closest to what I'm looking to do with mine.

I'm not a fan of the lava rock type stuff with the hole but everything looks great.

I'm not usually a fan of the lava rock or sunken ship look either, but I think it looks great here, especially with all the plants. Looks quite organic and natural. Must be one happy betta!

Thanks I tried to keep it as natural as possible while still giving Groucho the little nooks he likes to weave through and hide in. He has a fascination with holes and bridges.....
