Cool fish, but he needs more room, a filter, preferably a plant and a cave to hide in.

He is a great looking beta.
If you can you should get a 10 gal. and put him in there.He will love it.
I have mine in a ten with 5 neons and an apple snail.
The filter and heater just make life so much easier.

Yeah, i would northen guy but i don;t have the room, atm i don;t have room for him, but i couldn;t resist.
I have attached a photo of "the fishy wall" which is almost completly full, where u can see his tank, is the cupboard on which the 2 ft is going ( and no i'm putting water in this one its for land hermits ). i have room for 1 or 2 more tanks, but not the money, and once i gte some more ( only 4 months until i reach legal age to get a proper job! ). once i do i can probably get 1 or 2 2FTs.maybe i could set up a betta wall... LOL anyways i'll quite my babbling, i am atm printing out pics to put on the wall behind to make it look pretty ( its bare and PURPLE!! )
*smacks self in head* quit babbling. ok so heres the pic

beautiful fish! I've always love that coloring, its so striking. I keep hoping that I'll find a mustard one day when I have more room for fish.

That picture of the big tank you posted, you've got it supported in the middle. I thought it was more important to have tanks supported on the corners than in the middle?

Hey I got the same bookshelf as you!

If you don't have room to give the fish a good home, you should do the responsible thing and not buy it.

That being said, you have heaps of room. The dresser the bowl sits on could easily hold a tank, and by moving things closer together you could prolly fit another dresser or tank stand in.

Mvjnz, as i said, i am trying hard to get in as much as i can, and he is better off where he is now than in the pet shop. and also, the bookshelf he is on now, is where a 2 FT is going ( that isn;t for fish so no he cn;t go in :P ) Korith, i am atm doing some DIY to support the sides, and that was a cheap bookshelf from the supermarket, and its the perfect size for my new 2 FT.

If you don't give him anything other than an empty bowl then no, he's not better off. At least give him some plants and a cave to hide in, it will make his environment more interesting and the plants will help with water quality.

I agree!
Not to give you a hard time but you are asking for trouble mounting a tank like that.
It should be completely supported underneath.If you can get some plywood to put under it, it would be a lot safer.:22:

I am suprised the tank has lasted that long.

When my cousin's first set up their 75g, there was a little less support on one corner and it broke the tank...

Harls the tank was at Crazy Clarks, Crazy Prices AND another shop in Laidley. It used to be more, but they made it alot cheaper...

Its like 36cmx25cmx22cm <I thinks>

*shrugs* might be a different one. did itr have all the filter and stuff with it?

Demi ^_^
01-05-2009, 06:43 AM
hmm, maybe...

You should head to the Fernvale Markets

I went their yesterday and their was a 10g or something (1.5ftx12"x12") for 15 bucks with a filter, heater, gravel, thermometre, etc... I couldn't bring it home as we had only gone in for a quicksie browse and I hadn't any cash with me..

You HAVE the room ;)

And you told me you have 10 bucks, correct? Go on eBay or somewhere, you may be able to find a small tank worth that much..

Throw some java moss in there. It'll do fine in those conditions, it'll help with the water quality, and your betta needs something else in there. If you're lucky, the store might even give you it for free since it's so easy to grow.

I think he appreciates the extra space and to be away from all those other bettas and all the loud people in the store, but I think he'd be really happy with a bit of cover, and java moss is a good option.

Very nice fish though. Get him a proper tank as soon as you can.
