That would look really cool as a tank, but how would you filter it?

You also need to think about the weight that would put on the base. It might not be a problem, but just thought it should be mentioned.

On tubing in air, betas are labyrinth fish, so they need to surface from time to time. Weird but tech heavy thought, what about installing a kinda mini sump filter thing in the base..

I know, way to complex, but someone reading this just started drawing it in their head... Heh

Structurally that thing should be tough. They are put in public places. You could just do sponge filters with the bubbler.
