Hey everyone. I have been going to my lfs about once a week for the past month now looking at their selection. I wasnt able to find one that stood out until the other day. My girlfriend and I walked in and there he was. We both immediately seen him in those puny little bowls that they keep them in. He was showing off all his fins were extended .

So a little about his tank. Its a 10 gallon tank. I have a 15w life glo flourescent bulb for my lighting. For filtration im using a lustar hydro-sponge filter made for a 20 gallon tank and a whisper air pump to match. I have the pump set at around 3/4 flow rate though. I have live plants in it. They are Cabomba and dwarf sag.

I will post pics later tonight.

YAY! More than 5gals is always awesome for bettas. They seem so much happier with space and live plants :D

This guy seems much happier now then the day i got him. I was watching him lay on the cabomba the other day basking in the light by the looks of it. I wish i could have got a pic of it.

Oh he's beautiful! Love your setup in the tank, too, it looks great. It sure beats a boring little cup or bowl, doesn't it?!

Thanks, It does beat the bowl that he was in when i got him. He is very active now.
