Micro 1.5 Gallon Betta "pond"

I decided to do a quick experiment/tranfer tank project. My betta hasn't been getting allong with ANYTHING I put in his tank including, snails and himself! so I'm trying to set up a 5 gallon for him.

In the meantime while his new tank is settling and cycling I decided to set up a "micro pond".


It has hornwort, flame moss, some floaters, and two almond leaves (keeps him super chill!)

equipment:

azoo palm filter (for flow)
azoo galaxy PC daylight fixture
sand and shrimp sand substrate mixture
small betta heater

Heres the betta setling in and looking confused :P the almond leaves seem to calm him.

I have it sitting on my desk since I moved the 2.5 back on my shelf.

That's a pretty cool set up. Love the scape. I just don't get why you call it a pond(?)

Maybe because it looks like a pond. Round, not too deep, floating pads, stem plants below, dead leaves, sandy bottom.

Nice!
