My Multi Betta Tank

I built this multi betta tank with UGF at the rear along with heater and pump which draws water from the front and releases it into the rear tank where the water after getting mixed and passing through the sand rises in the front tank through the laterite pebbles.

If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.

A net to cover the substrate and UGF pebbles then added sand and set up the aquarium.

Very nice idea...I like it. Will you be breeding them or fighting them?

It is allowed in certain countries. I am pretty sure that they do it legally in Indonesia, isn't it? "Essabee" is in India and I can't be cetain if it is legal there or not but I've seen video about the Betta being caught in the wild and bred for fighting with others.

Very nice design. Bettas are notorious jumpers so covering the top of the compartments is recomended if you don't what them visiting their neighbors.

Im sure essabee will not be fighting them!

Nice design essabee. There are tanks similar to this around here except they dont have the back for filtration.

NeonShrimp-I think it is covered.

lovely idea. Great if you're breeding, I always have more babies then I can place.

Yes! I do have a clear acrylic cover over the front. No I don't intend my bettas to fight, I rather breed them but for that I will be using a different tank. I have designed and built different type of spawning tanks for egg scaterers but for betta spawning a 5G with slate bottom, potted plants/floating plants and UGF would I think be more appropriate as I need to remove the female without disturbing the bubble nest (I might need to design a female betta trap too).

I have ordered a mirror to cover the filter tank (face upwards) to cut off the light in the filter and bring the light to the front.
