I'm thinking I may actually leave him alone... Not 100% sure on that, but he's got such space to move around in... Call me sentimental but it's kind of like a tribute to those poor bettas I kept years ago in a tiny bowl...
I know for sure I'm going for CFL bulbs for my tank hood and will go planted...
What more could he want?
It's just sooo cute he dances for me while I do dishes... He's at perfect eye level.

Yep, that's what I had to do to fill my 55 gallon originally. I had to drag the hose more than 30 feet, then I had to attach the end of the hose to a pole and hoist it into a second-story window!

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...

Aww thank you! Me too. I loved him from the second I laid eyes on him.. He was so gorgeous even in the cup I gasped.

I've thought about tank mates for king Neptune. I think I'm going to leave him be. He loves his tank and it's his. I don't want him to feel like he has to claim his territory.

Funny thing he does- he stalks my MTS! It's so funny watching him watch the sand and gravel move.

Yeah, personally, I think Bettas should have their own tank. They are so pretty they deserve it
