Well, the tank has been setup about a month and the plants are filling in nicely.

(nice looking tank, when it grows in it will look 4 times better)
Just wanted to say according to the title, when someone "rescues" a fish or betta from Anywhere (rescue meaning they and most fish are in bad shape) unless you steal it (have before, quite easy since they don't care) then you aren't saving it. Your letting it take other fish into unhealthy conditions by purchasing and paying the company to do so. Meaning you just bought a bad health fish and your paying the company to make other fish unhealthy.

The little guy has fin rot and it is pretty bad. I'm treating with Erythromycin. I hope it works.

Weekly Update: I am really digging the Rotala and the Hygros: the bronze color is awesome. DHG is starting to look nice as a carpet.

Great set up for a betta. I'm sure he's grateful for such conditions, it's like a palace for him ;P

Very pretty. Those plants are developing some nice red and bronze colors.

The Rotala is very aggressive! I had to do a MAJOR trim and cut it back. I also cut the DHG down so that it will spread. I'm really diggin how this tank is turning out! I cannot say enough for ADA Aquasoil Malaya!

I think his tail might be trying to grow back. At least I was able to stop the fin rot with Erythromycin. Anyway, he loves his tank! He likes to play in the circulation pump current. Yeah, he's a handful of personality.

That is indeed some good looking Rotala! I don't even see a spec of algae in there. Very nice!

The Rotala is out of control! I have to constantly trim it, but the tank has filled nicely. Sorry for the hazy picture, but the glare from the tank causes havoc with my camera: I assure you that the water is not cloudy.

Wow, I envy you that rotala. How much CO2 are you pumping in there?
