Great tank! Amazing layout and plant growth!

How is the betta fairing in there? I would worry in such a small tank without a lid! I'd love to hear about your experience!

Thanks for the comments!

The Betta is doing good. I actually have a cover that I put on top. I'm in the process of setting up my Mini S, which is around 3.5G and will house the betta. I'll probably just keep some shrimp in here.

Some of the basics:

-UP Aqua LED Light (36 dim leds)
-Azoo Mignon HOB
-ADA Aquasoil
-Macro Aqua Disposable co2 w/ceramic diffuser

Nice tank and cool betta. Now would that be a Showa or a Sanke? I can never keep those straight... Would need to see it from above, haha

Amazing photography as well! If you made a coffee table book of nano tank pics, I'd buy it. Just sayin'

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Agreed, whenever I try to take a picture of any of my tanks, all I get is a bunch of streaky fish shapes. Beautiful pics.

I think he needs a few more gallons to work it off.

No, I'm not a big fan of DSM. I know it's worked for people, but I don't like the transition where everything kinda stops once the plant is submersed. I started this with just small groupings spread around. Changed alot of water regularly, keep lights to 4 hrs initially and made sure co2 was good and I never went through any algae issues.

Man... seeing all these manos pop up really make me want to start another. I have a IKEA malm night stand where a 2g would fit perfectly. Is your a zoo noisy? I bought my gf one and it seemed to vibrate a lot? I couldn't imagine sleeping with a buzz right next to my bed

Can't argue with that, but he looks pretty good in the meantime! Usually the problem with smaller betta setups tends to be the inconsistency (temp and parameters), but with plant growth like that, I don't see that being much of a problem. But that's just my opinion.

Sorry, newbie questions incoming, but what kind of plants do you have here ? Especially the "grass looking" bottom plants? Is that something a low tech aquarium could have ?

Also, where does everyone get their driftwood and stuff? eBay? I'm alittle weary as I'm not sure what I can get away with in getting through the opening of the edge I have.
