Looks like a good fish buffet! Good to see the Betta eating his veggies!

29 bowfront from goldfish to my pride and joy

So I'm thinking of rescaling
The Betta has tattered fins and it looks self induced from squeezing into places
My plan is to take the current scape and set it up in the 38 gallon.....then look for natural, Betta safe material to set up some caves and plant it. I also need to figure out which fish I can house in there with him

He was fine with neon tetras, just ignores them but I will be getting a new heater and neons don't like it over 78....my old heater kept it at 77




So I need something with a higher temperature range to go in at 80-83....without fancy fins




This is my current scape

This last summer, my tank hit 81-82 for days on end: the neons seemed to do just fine, though perhaps they were stressed and I just didn't notice it. I'm no saying it would definitely work: just offering a data point.

As for new companions for the betta, both cardinals and rummynoses like the higher temps. I'm not sure how they'd get along with the betta, though.

Are they nippy fish? As long as they ignore the Betta, he ignores them

I have a 38gallon ready to hold the neons as well as my wcmm. It's currently wintering goldfish while cycling

I really love your current scape. I received a Betta for Christmas, apparently I am hard to shop for and a fish was the first thing that came to mind, and in the little time I have had with him I adore him so good luck with Mr. Betta healing up.

Anyways, from what research I have been doing for a larger tank for my betta + some potential tankmates for me to enjoy I think I came across most of the suggestions you have on the first page of this thread. I'm pretty sure you are looking for a mid-level fish though so the first thing that came to my mind that hasn't been said yet would have to be the Blind Cave Fish. I had a fair sized school of them a while back and I have to say they were surprisingly entertaining fish. They are unlikely to cause problems and are a fairly peaceful fish. They are fast enough that if your Betta tries to cause a problem, the BCF will just outswim him. That and no fancy fins or colours to set off your Betta.

Thanks, I was fond of this scape too, but I really loved having the Betta in the 29, as opposed to a ten in my bedroom. I actually have a chair by my tank, where I relax while the others watch tv lol

I figure it will take a few months to come up with a plan I really like again but to watch him shimmering, it's worth it

I started with a couple of glass caves....will move out from thereClick image for larger version

My next step is a better heater, then plants and wood

Thanks for the fish tip I'll look for some. I was also considering platies ....my lfs keeps Betta with them

Thanks

One piece at a time lol

I want to get some shrimp in there but need some more cover first.....was thinking last night that if I get some java moss, it will grow in the mesh of the cave that I built and hide it for me, whilst providing cover for shrimp

Right now it's buried in rocks and sand but you can still see the meshClick image for larger version

I always liked your tank. Us jungle people have to stick together against the formal guys and gals.
