Nice looking tank and fish. I wish my tank would have cycled in 5 days. Usually my tanks do. For some reason, I am on week 3 and still have nitrite. Enough about me. Welcome to the hobby! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

This isn't rocket surgery

You want to be careful since it's only 2.5 g tanks that small can sometimes never fully cycle. But it looks pretty well planted so just be sure to keep up with healthy water changes

I agree with ichy. You set up a beautiful tank, have a beautiful fish, take pride in them, joined a fish forum, and rightfully so showed them off. Yup, I'd say that you've been bitten by the fish tank bug....lol

That's a 2.5 gallon?? What are the dimensions on that? I'd like to get/make one for a nano scape.

Nice tank and Betta! Try and get more pics of him! A flaring one would be cool, give it a caption "You shall not pass!" haha
