that was amazing. I wonder though how the betta gets back to the top again.

What a great set-up for a betta.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

Indeed, it was like a multi-level betta wonderland....I wonder why there was only 1 there to enjoy it?...surely big enough set-up for a few, I would think

Brilliant video, Thanks for sharing.
I lost a betta to a jump through the tiniest gap in the lid :( A sad day for me as they are such fun little fish. I am always tempted at the lfs but have resisted due to tasty guppy tails!

That's awesome. I want that tank so bad... Wild-type betta in there would be totally epic! And he's a cutie, a smart cutie by the looks of it. You could kinda see him trying to decide where the best spot in that trickle was... I bet he just does that for fun.
Lost a really nice betta to a jump once... And I used to have this one in my community tank that kept jumping up and somehow wedging herself in the corner of the tank every night, out of the water. There were no problems that I managed to find, so I just started putting her in a cup with a net lid every night so she couldn't get up in a corner. I also had a female once who didn't quite jump, but she did something similar... My brother put his finger in the tank for her to bite, but she bit harder than he expected and when he jerked his finger out, the betta held on and ended up on the floor! She was fine, though, just a bit dazed.I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
