Very bright and fun! Have you already cycled the tank?

Yep.... it cycled in about four weeks with two peppered corys, then I added 6 Neon Tetras and it has been like that for the last 3 weeks, so all in all, it has been running for 8 weeks now (one week empty, just the set up, no fish), I added gravel from a friends established tank and I've been reading 0 ammonia for the last 4 weeks and last week my nitrates were around 10, I haven't tested this week but will do before adding the betta!

The long awaited betta home!!! LOl, it looks great. Did you decide on live or fake plants? Or are you still thinking about it? They aren't as hard as you think. All of my tanks are planted and they are easy peasy. good job and can't wait to see the betta in his new home!!!

Cheers to all, thanks for all your comments, here it is... after 8 weeks from initial set-up! Rey-Rey the Betta!


I hope you like it...!!!

I'll stick to plastic plants for now... I'm really up to the challenge, and I know I can do it... and also, as you said Kayla, I'm sure it will look a lot better, for now I just need to find a good place that carries them, is not that easy in Mexico!

Very cute!! I love him. And check places like www.ebay.com and www.aquabid.com There are other places online that will ship anywhere that carry live plants, but the thing is, when you order live things like plants you are usually stuck paying for a $30 shipping fee so that are insured to get there. www.drsfosterandsmith.com sell packages. I bought one from there and you get plenty of plants in the packages. Good luck with your new betta and tank!!
