Great start! You might want to cover the top of the tank with something. Amano shrimp will jump out......and especially if the Betta starts going after them more, they may jump trying to get away from him. ;) I learned the hard way about them jumping.

Sweeeet, nice start. My first start wasn't so great; took me a while. ;)

Anyways, those are pretty nice tank, those curved rimless ones. I have a 3 gallon version myself and I love it almost or just as much as my ADA one.

I would try to get in two small rocks in there (maybe one small, one medium) but I think that will look great when it grows in and the rock is a bit more 'aged'.

And freaking nice betta! Any flaring pictures? I agree with the comment that the amano/yamato shrimps would probably jump out. But it would be such a shame to cover a nice rimless tank.

My only suggestion (aside from agreeing about a top and maybe a couple more similar rocks) would be to maybe figure out a way for the shrimp to be able to hide from the betta, they act brave but that would be a lot of stress for them (imo anyway)

Nice start :)

thanks everyone for your comment..

yes i bought 2 rocks initially but the second one is too big n i dun have the tools to break it up :(..

the tank is bought from my local LFS doesnt come with a brand n model on it..not sure about the gallons either pretty small to me..

yeah the betta caused the shrimps to jump out i realised last nite....i took the betta out to solve the problem cos i prefer shrimps more :fish:

I personally think it's too big for the tank. And I will gladly take the betta off your hands (somehow lol). ;) Too bad all the nice bettas are in Asia.

If you are refering to a Silver or Black Arowana, I would advise against it. They get WAY too big for a tank of your size and they are also jumpers. A freind of mine has a Silver Arowana in a 180 gallon tank and the tank is too small for it IMO. It is eating large feeder fish and mice occasionally. An Arowana would make short work of your shrimp.

As far as your nano goes, it is looking great! I would get some more plants and fill in some of the gaps, but thats about it.
