    What do you do when you are only allowed 2 tanks at home? You set one up at work of course!

    Standard 5.5 tank with a sand substrate and some mopani driftwood.

    Added some anubias and java fern.

    And here's Matt.

    Using a 50w aqueon pro heater and a small tetra internal filter. Lighting is handled by a standard T5 bulb. With the black background the filter and heater pretty much blend in and you don't see them... the filter was seeded with media from my brichardi tank, so going from that to a tank with a single fish I pretty much had an instant cycle!

    This is a nice bit of tranquility in what can be a somewhat stressful environment...

    That's the way to go! I need one of those myself (but my office as no climate control, and no electrical outlets)

    Matt has a castle! I thought it fit nicely with the vibe of this tank. I'm gonna try putting an anubias on top and letting the roots grow down around the castle...

    Very pretty tank and betta! I really like the substrate you chose, fits the scape well.
    Is the tank ok in the location though? Considering it’s right below “Caution,flying tools in area”? Lol, just kidding:D

    Tanks doing well! The plants are filling in nicely, Matt is doing well (was surprised to see how pale he looked back when I got him, he's really colored up now!), and I have almost no algae! I'll have to take a few pics tomorrow...

    You are right his body really colored in well! Nice tank setup, I think the anubias is a good idea, It will make it look like one of those jungle ruins.
