    Default JW's 2 10 gallon betta tanks


    2 Not allowed!
    Well hello everyone. I am going to go ahead and start my journal for my Betta tanks.

    I know I mentioned I was going to use two fluval spec Vís to home our Bettas but I have since changed my mind about that. I am going to go ahead and use plain ole 10 gallons. I already have one of them so all I need to do is pick up another. I am going to use a couple of sponge filters I found on amazon hooked up to an air pump that will operate both sponge filters. I will link my amazon list so you guys and gals can see what I have selected for the two tanks.

    As for the stand, Iím going to build a sort of double decker stand and have one tank on top of the other.
    Ok a little about the fish, my gf wants a white/lightish Betta and I will be going with a darker Betta. So for Ms. Jwfish the substrate will be black, and mine will be white. I wont be planting the tank/ well I should say I may stick some anubius and moss in it but thatís pretty much it.

    Ok here is the list so far:

    Your link didn't really provide anything?

    That being said sounds like an awesome setup. An anubias would be perfect and bettas like calmer waters so a 10 gallon filter for just one of those guys would probably be a good way to roll. Have you considered maybe something like "duckweed" for the top of the water? Might feel more natural to the bettas and add quite a bit of character to the tanks.

    Going to subscribe. I really find little projects like this neat.

    Be cautioned, that stuff can get out of control in a hurry. A floating canopy that is solid.

    Your tank could go "dark" with full-on light, and it can clog HOB's in certain setups.

    +1 to this^

    I've heard horror stories about having duckweed. I've read about how it is almost impossible to get rid of it once it is in a tank.

    Exactly that's what I want to stay away from, and I have heard and read that it gets out of control pretty fast.

    If you want floating plants, there are many other less "invasive" options, lol
