Lemme see your: Ocean Free tanks

A couple years ago Petco decided to get rid of all their 1.3g glass "Ocean Free" tanks (my two are 1.3 anyway and rectangle, they also had somewhat larger ones with rounded front corners) and I found two of them (I wish I could have found at least one more though).

If you have any and you are using them (or used them at some point and took pics) I would love to see them!

I have one with a betta in it right now temporarily, it has a light (7w red sea) and a filter (red sea nano filter, I love that thing. lol) but it isn't fit for photos at the moment. I'm thinking of making on a nano/pico paludarium and one either a nano/pico viv or just a regular planted...

No fish or invert tanks right now... just 1 H. azureiventris...
But I'm working on that!

I finally have pics though they are with my cellphone camera. I love Anachris it just grows so fast. I have doubled my amount in under a month.



-----------------


A closer but not better picture of my new Betta. This guys is mostly black but when he opens the tail the inner webbing is that blue/green color and when its closed it is all black. really freaking cool. and i know he looks mostly blue but he is really more black with a slight tint of the blue. in the above pic you can see how the tail is black with the blue webbing.



-----------------


And here is my first tank now over run with snails and a little dark I need a brighter light since my moss wall is starting to take all the light. also the Betta is there on the right, blends right in.

he looks like a double ray crowntail to me. see how a few of the rays in the center of the tail have a Y shape? but im no expert on betta strains.
also i was sure it was a butterfly. if thats a lace then whats a butterfly?
