I will have to see how the betta is in the DT, but right now, he's pretty calm. Comes to the glass when I feed, never bothers the clown or Koran. I see him day and night, never hides. He also eats frozen foods... So we shall see... I've also seen clowns and other fish with these guys in those videos... He could easily eat the Koran, goby, and clown if he wanted. They even swim with the betta, so hopefully I got lucky.

I didn't know Koran took forever to grow. Guess I get to enjoy the colors longer then I thought.

Raised DT salinity, too. Now up to 1.009. No signs of issues, prams holding steady. Idk, hopefully I'm good... Just one day at a time.

That's the right attitude to have!

Wow... That fish is beautiful! So my daughter will be old enough to see it change... Very cool... Glad I went with the Koran...

I have another question for the experts, what do y'all think about a garage build? I have a 140g that I'm repairing. Wife said I can have another tank as long as is isn't in the house... Lol... Was going to set it up in the garage. Bad idea?

Might need a chiller and a heater for sure. Lol. I would imagine evaporation would be horrible in a garage.

Personally- I might consider closing in your garage and running a few ducts from the main house's ac unit in there before. I live in Florida and my garage gets up to 100 degrees in the summer and nights in the winter it is as cold as 20 degree (on the coldest nights).

But hey- if your wife says anything about doing the above- tell her you are planning on making a den for the house. Lol. It could be your own personal man/fish cave.

Also- you may want to look into putting a dehumidifier in there too.

Just my two cents.

Not sure if you need a dehumidifier. I've been to Colorado many times to see family and I don't think I've seen the humidity get above 12%. Then again, I'm from upstate NY and everywhere is dry to me (except Florida).
