My 5G Betta Tank!

Ok so currently it only houses my betta but i'll likely add 4 or 5 ghost shrimp in the very near future. If you really look closely you'll notice in the second picture that my plant on the left moved a little bit and the water was a bit cloudy. Turns out my betta didn't like being photographed and decided to uproot my plant haha

Hello,

Your tank looks great!
What type of light are you using?
The shrimp might not be food if you have enough hiding spots

How long did it take for your 5 gallon to cycle and how did you do it? I'm getting a 5 gallon I just bought off line that should be here this week so I can add a Betta to my fish family

Thanks!

Michelle: My tank took about 3 weeks to cycle. I did a fish-in cycle though and i didn't like it. Last one i ever did. Smaller tanks IMO take less time to cycle so as long as you have an ammonia source you should be good to go in 3-4 weeks.

Beautiful Betta tank! Ghost shrimp will make a great addition.
