Redid my tanks

Hello

I redid my tanks after some suggestions on here. Here ya GO!





As a bonus I added a view of my wall of the side tanks, including my QT tank which currently houses a female betta to keep it cycled.


As always suggestions and opinions are welcome even if it is negative.

remove that betta now! it is probably very stressed without anywhere to hide, why dont you put both filters in the main tank then whenever you need to use the quarantine tank move one filter there.

I got some old decor lying around, I added them in. I can put her in my 29G but I would rather keep my QT tank cycled. Do you know if a cycled tank stays cycled if I just keep the sponge filter going and do weekly water changes??


I thought she might be ok since she is always responsive and comes to the front of the tank. I have seen people keep bettas in those 2 gallon tanks with nothing but gravel, I figured compared to that she is in the Presidential Suite!

Thanks!

Bettas are territorial so by having no decor there are no territories for her to defend so that tank is probably stressing her as its a big open space for one betta.

re keeping the tank cycled, what you mentioned is not enough to keep it so, you would need to feed the tank even if there are no fish in it, this rotting food will produce ammonia which is then converted etc etc keeping the cycle going. Or add a couple of more suitable fish and just carry on as normal

guppies are good at keeping a tank cycled, why dont you just have two filters in the main tank and move one of the filters to the quarantine tank when needed, thats what i do (but i clean the filter before i put it back in the main tank :)

Nice lookin setup! i especially like the pic with the red lighting.I have used black lights before but i like the red. I'm sure that it would be good for seeing nocturnal fish. By the way is that a desert eagle on the wall?

AHHH I woke up this morning and saw my betta hanging around my makeshift caves using a bunch of old terracotta pots. She is much happier now, thanks!

OFF TOPIC
Yes that is an official Airsoft Desert Eagle, Two-tone Metal and spring loaded. I can shoot it around in the house with a sticky target. I am also getting a Green Gas Tokyo Murai Airsoft HK handgun also. I have a real full sized Beretta which I inherited.
