O.k. well I'm planning on making the ULTIMATE betta tank to keep my very first betta happy and healthy. I use to HATE bettas mostly for how people treated them in the first place, Tiny Containers (less than 1g), no plants, colorful substrate (well that's mostly just me. . .I don't like un-natural colors), and only
commercial pellet food and so on.
But after seeing a Baby Betta at Petco I just had to try my hand at it.
-I bought a 2.5 gallon fish tank (would have been 5.5 but they were out :/)
-Lighting is residual lighting from my Shrimp Bowl
-Gravel is Black Aquarium Gravel from Petco (large kind so it doesn't blow around everywhere)
-Also bought this amazing piece of Flat Lace Rock which has a nice red/orange color to it.
-"Assorted" Anubias from Petco (I'm guessing it's a Nana)
-and finally....the Baby Betta.
(Oh and some bits and pieces of moss from my shrimp bowl)
and note that this tank has been around for a while but it looked crappy and didn't do Felicity<----(Inside Joke if you know Day)(Girl) or Manfred(Also inside joke if you know Day)(Boy). It was extremely crappy originally and I don't even have pictures of it (who would?) so this isn't a new cycling tank that's stressing the Betta.
Future Plans consist of:
-Buying Indian Almond Leafs (The tannins leached from them boosts their Immune system)
-More Non-Stem Plants, Including some sort of floater (I'm thinking Duckweed since I have it in my bowl and I think it suites the "theme" I'm going for)
-Live Foods (will use Shrimp from shrimp bowl once it gets too overpopulated)
I know this was a long post and thanks for reading it if you got this far haha.
