Oh my word mumma. Your aquascaping skills is awesome. Looks so peaceful. And do you have a male betta in there or a female?

And yes, the 3d background just adds beauty to the whole thing. Great job.

Ohhhh he is beautiful. So i am guessing he doesn't bother the neons then. They all look so good together.

He'll briefly chase one occasionally but has never hurt one. He grew up with them so I guess he's use to them.

Thanks! Yeah I bought it at petstock. Was $30-$40 I think. They had 3 different styles but only one size. I have seen larger ones in other stores though.

I was skeptical when I first got it. It looked pretty dodgy out if the tank. Lol

I've cleaned up the switches and stuff on the front. They where caked in dust and grime. That's about it. going to start gutting it Saturday if time permits.

We bought paint for the inside and started designing the false bottom to bring the tank up to the right level. Not very exciting but, hey, it's an update
