Thanks fresh2o here is my tank photographed yesterday. Looking good however as I had neglected to clean it properly. There is still some alge left on the pump. Hopefully my new Pleco is hungry enough to eat it!!! Lol Click image for larger version

Looks good! I wouldn't have complete faith in the pleco though. They make more of a mess than they clean up. It's you are having algae problems it is likely a different underlying problem such as:
1. Over feeding
2. Lights on too long
3. Imbalance in fertilizers(if you use them)
4. Lack of frequent water changes.

Just some ideas

Thanks Caleb, I think it was me not cleaning it often enough😣. I'm reformed now and I will start. I used to clean it once a week and do a 1/4 water change but as my life got busier I changed to 1/2 once every 3 weeks and so it didn't help the tank I guess!!!!

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I own two bettas at the moment. I love bettas and I know a lot about them and am still learning more. When I got my first betta (Joey) I didn't know that the recommended tank size was 2.5 or 5 gallons, so I put him in a small 0.7 gallon and he still thrives today. I tried to buy a bigger one but my mom won't let me. I soon got a another betta after that (of course after convincing my strict mother) and he lives in a 3 gallon. I have owned guppies, goldfish, mollies, snails and tetras in the past, but I found I love bettas the best. If you have any questions or concerns just send me a PM! Thanks
Ashley

Meh.... you dont need alot of money. Im certainly not rich, lol. But you can find lots of deals if you look hard enough. Give me a few mins and ill post some pics of tanks and list how i acquired them. Ive never bought a new tank over 40 gals and i have a dozen bigger than that. Mostly paid 1-2$ per gallon.
