    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    The old betta was also bought at petco. Unsure of the age, but I can't imagine it could be that old even if it sat in the store awhile, I'm sure the vendor ships them out fairly young. From what I understand, bettas can live for the better part of a decade if taken care of properly. Just wish I knew what happened because I would hate to do the same thing to this one unknowingly.

    heh, still there... been a lot of other projects around the house that took priority.

    Have actually turned this tank into a dwarf gourami and african dwarf frog tank... along with whatever fry I decide to put in there temporarily.

    just looked at the last picture I posted of this tank. You should see the moss wall now Can't even see the wood anymore really.

    Would love to see new pics! I have a particular fondness for dwarf gouramis :). As to the window, if you happen to get around to re-doing that part, and are still looking to get rid of it... I'd buy it and give it a good home!

    Ok, here's some better quality pictures finally...


    View from living room


    View from kitchen

    Should have probably waited to take the pictures until after the water change when I could tidy up the moss and have the tank full to the trim, but oh well. Got excited to be able to use the camera .

    If you really do want the window, if we can get it out in one piece, I could try to figure out a price, but shipping alone would be murder, I'm sure.

    Edit: yeahhhh, looking at the pictures again, I'll definitely be putting up some new ones after I do a little tidying up.

    I think it's lovely! Dense vegetation, but that's not a bad thing necessarily. What is the red plant in the middle (in the first pic)? I like the hint of red among the big green leaves.

    Also, handsome little dude you got in there...

    Definitely keep me abreast of the tacky window situation. I'll PM you my email if you ever get rid of it. If the price on the window is fair, Shipping would be worth it

    Ok, here we go, better pictures!

    And a new addition! Bumblebee goby . Will now be removing the platy fry to take down the bioload a bit. Just forgot to take them out before I filled the tank to the rim with water... oops...

    Added a ghost shrimp, too, but wouldn't have been able to get a good picture of him. So the final stocking list should be....

    1 neon blue dwarf gourami
    1 bumblebee goby
    1 african dwarf frog
    1 ghost shrimp

    Quite a diverse little 5.5 gallon tank... little different than just a betta, anyway.

    Oh yeah, the little red plant is some type of ludwigia species I took from my 20 gallon tank. Forget the exact name. It hasn't done much of anything since I put it in there. I snipped off the tops of the plant that turn a nice red when they reach the surface of my 20 right under the light.
