    Yeah - I had to do it. My hubby really likes bettas and since this is technically HIS tank, I decided to go ahead and get this guy when there were no rams. Tom's really thrilled with him. He's going to be a sight when he's fully grown.

    And you know what else? I think I might have to agree with you about the tank. I bumbled around and accidentally came up with a winner. I think it's my favorite. And the other beauty of it is, it takes me like 5 minutes to change out the water every week, dose with Flourish Comprehensive and rinse out a couple sponges. That's it. No vac, no wiping down the glass, no fuss, no muss. Fingers crossed that things stay that way :o)

    Haha, I knew you wouldn't wait too long for another betta. The plants in that tank are growing in very nicely. We are always going on about bigger tanks but we shouldn't snub our noses at the smaller ones. I've seen some really nice looking smaller tanks. As long as we remember small tank = small fish they can be just as stunning and fun as the big tanks.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Yeah. I caved really fast :o) And I agree. I never dreamed I would enjoy this little tank so much. It's so easy to care for and the plants just seem to grow on their own. I may fiddle with a bit in the future and clear out a space in the front if I can find some room for those smaller crypts somewhere. they're so healthy but they've grown in pretty thick.

    Beautiful tank -- as everyone has already said -- and lovely new addition!

    If I might ask you: How many neons are in this 15 gal? (I'm shamelessly plotting for my future a bit) I like the look of those little endlers too.

    What is your secret to such a low maintenance tank and keeping it so... well-kept looking?

    Great addition, Cindy! Junior is a very handsome fellow. Seems a bit shy right now, but I'm sure he'll be out and about in no time.

    I'm sorry you didn't get the GBRs, but I'm very happy that you got this beautiful little guy. They're such characters in their own right and will be a welcome addition to the 15gal.

    As for the scaping? Beautifully done. It truly looks wonderful. Be proud, momma, be very proud!

    Thanks. he's a beauty for sure.

    I've got 10 neons at last count. and 8 endlers. they're such little things - not even an inch. With the betta it's well stocked but with the plants nitrates are always less than 5ppm

    What is your secret to such a low maintenance tank and keeping it so... well-kept looking?
    Secret? Luck. Seriously. Well and some great advice from the Fish Flakes and consistent weekly water changes. I also have double filtration and have tucked sponges into the water spill to keep the flow from being too fast for the small fish.
    I used to have a 5 gal with the betta and 6 neons (overstocked) and I always fought brown algae. It wasn't planted so I decided to switch to plants. Even then, I fought algae and the plants just didn't grow. So, I opted to go a little bigger - this 15 long - and add a few more fish. Ever since then, it's like everything kicked into place. I make weekly W/C of about 30%. The substrate is mostly flourite with some black sand on top. When I added the extra fish, I added 2 nerites snails and an apple snail. I swear they were instrumental in turning the tank around.
    I now dose with 1/4 cap full of flourish comprehensive each week, feed lightly and that's it. I never have to wipe down the glass anymore and I don't vac the substrate. The lights are on for 3 hours or so in the morning then off until around 5:00 or 6:00 pm and they get turned off when hubby goes to bed- usually around 10:00 pm
    Again, I had a lot of great advice from the Fish Flakes - that's what led me to the flourite and the flourish.

    Coming from the king of scaping, that's very much appreciated. Thanks

    As to the GBR's - I have a feeling a pair will end up in the 30 this fall :o)

    fishmommie ~ Thanks for those answers. I again took notes. One of my future (dream) tanks will be a Betta tank. I'll provide him a good home or else I won't do it at all. Thanks for your inspiration.
