Betta set-up



Size: A little more than 1 gallon.
Fauna: 1 Betta
Flora: Java Ferns, Taiwan/Java Moss mix
Decor: Malaysian Driftwood, rocks
Substrate: ADA Malaya(just in case I decide to plant some more)
Filter: None

Would this be considered a pico tank? Any thoughts on improvement?

Looks good... I think lol it's a bit hard to tell because it's round.

Yes! I snuggle with rats!

Looks good Personally, I think the moss takes away from the appearance and crowds the bottom portion too much. Just me, though.

Pretty Betta, too

Yeah... I did remove the mosses after you suggested it... Much less cramped looking. Will get an update up soon.

Update photo?

Did you ever take an updated photo of your pica betta set up? I'd love to see another pic of it!

*update*

After having my colleague give up on doing water changes, this little guy is now mine. I've moved him over to a 1.5 gallon nano. I've kept the Java Fern and driftwood from the previous vase. Half tank water changes are done every Monday and Thursday.



Wow... That's a pretty badly taken shot... The colour of the lighting's off...

Thanks for the update! I loved the look of the vase but I'm sure that betta is happier in the roomier tank! Beautiful fish!!!

I took the liberty to do a quick adjustment. Is this more like what it looks like?
