10 Gallon

Well yesterday I went out and bought a ton of silk plants since I noticed Ares' was starting to either tail biting or it was tears from the plastic plants. I removed all except 4 plastic plants which are very soft and I tested them with a pant hose.


Here is the 10 gallon before with plastic only plants.


And here it is now with the silk plants.

No I have 3 albino cories, 5 ghost shrimp and a gold mystery snail.
Thank you.
I think his coloration is considered to be mustard gas.

Looks like betta heaven to me. Nice pics.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Everyone knows i am not a fan of artificial plants, but...that does not deter from the fact that this is a nice aquascape. Very nice layout, well done. And I know the fish will be more settled.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Bryon,
Thanks, I have tried live plants in there but they didn't do so well, I think it is the lighting. The tank is in my room so it doesn't get well light and I have looked for light bulbs that I could replace for correct lighting and didn't come across any. But the silk plants do a fine job, and hopefully it will solve the tearing of the bettas fins, or just a new change will help stop him from tail bitting. Thank you again!
