I was at my Lfs picking up some bloodworms....then I saw a Betta I had to have, I've never even liked Betta's before I saw this one.

I had a 2.5g tank that has been in my attic for years. I wanted to put it on a shelf that built into my wall but it was an 1/8" to wide. I decided to derim the tank do it would fit. I broke and had to drive all over town to find a new one.

I through this whole tank together in about 5 hours.

Very cool! I would love to have aquariums incorporated in to the walls of my house. You did good work!

Two notes on it though. One is that the betta is not a veiltail -- it is a delta or possibly low grade halfmoon. Second, if you really want your little guy to flourish, Bettas do best in water temperatures of 76-82 degrees F, so you might consider finding a way to add a heater in there! Stability in the temperature and having the proper temperature will ensure that his health stays better and keeps him lively and happy!
