Just won 5 bay betta tank!

Today the new LFS in town (that I LOVE) was having a give away and I won the main prize! Got this 5 bay betta tank valued at $80au.

It came with these incredibly tacky ornaments so of course I gave them straight to my kids to destroy. Obviously its too small for Bettas since each compartment only 2L (just under 1/2 gallon). I don't really know what I'm going to do with it. Maybe some mini scapes with a single RCS. Or I could take it apart and put it back together without the dividers making one tank.

Well, you could turn that into a perfect beta tank, if you remove the dividers, the water will be 2.5 gallons, so then you will have space for a beta, and it is good since it is long and not too deep

I am thinking that. Managed to get one divider out. Wasn't that hard surprisingly. Thinking a 1g section and a 1.5g section.

A 1g and 1.5g would be enough for bettas , they need at least 2+ gallons

Not even sure of the stock for this tank. A betta is a possibility. then so are other fish and shrimp. Because of the footprint its got a few more options than a standard 2.5g. I'm sure there will be a build thread when I get around to actually thinking about. :p I've taken all the dividers out and found a light that fits perfectly!
