Right this is My Pico tank that I made from a CD Storage box available from Instore/Pounstretcher. Note that this was the first time i have tried to seal anything with sealer and its a little messy.

I have used it a few times, and since i have a Beautiful White Male Betta from my spawn I made him a little home.

Spare Peices of bogwood with some Glosso and Creeping Jenny Attached. just trying as some was floating around in the cube.
Some Dwarf Chain Swords and Salvinia as a Floating Plant.

Lighting is a Desk lamp with a reflector bulb in it.

Enjoy.

Even though it is only a few hours old. I've already got ideas for a cool little scape. Using Twisted Driftwood twigs and a carpeting plant, so watch this space

Oh, well anyways, it encouraged me to make a tiny pico out of the top of some box. i doubt i will keep it running long, as i don't really want to, but it was fun to see what i could do with it.

Thanks

I Just got back from Crimbo Sales shopping and found a place selling the most brilliant pico Vases that are perfect for Pico tanks. They are glass 3mm thick and weigh alot.

Will scape one up and post pix later.

Sorry, but tank is very small for betta.:icon_mad: Betta doesn't have room turn in tank.

No its not, the Tank is over twice the length wider than the fighter. If it wasn't happy to be in it, he wouldn't have a nest going right round rim of the tank. He does not like the larger sizes and prefers this size.

You obviously have little experience with bettas.

It looks to me like gill breeds bettas.
I can say from experience, bettas don't like anything real big, they're not the best swimmers. that tank is fine for him.
