Here are the pictures as promised. Sadly the tanks look pretty crummy right now because when I pulled all the plants from the 15 gal I had to make 2 tanks worth of silk plants stretch into 3 tanks worth.

Uploading my pictures sure had me reminiscing about all the different things I've tried with aquariums. I sure wish the live plants had worked out....they always looked so beautiful; that is before they got all full of algae and started to die . Of course, now that I only have silk I can have more bettas because it takes less time and money for maintenance . And my little Diva and Flame, you will be missed. Oh well, they say you learn more from your mistakes than your sucesses and I definitely have learned a lot!

So here are the tanks as of now. I plan to slowly redecorate soon...anyone have any ideas of a good color/size gravel for the 15 gal? I need to get rid of the sand because it's full of laterite from the plant days and it grows algae terribly and is a pain to clean. I'm going for the same light and sunny look but I want it to be a different color than my other gravel.

Thanks everyone :)

Poor Diva got a horrible case of popeye. I tried to treat her, but it wouldn't respond to anything. I had hoped that maybe only one eye was affected and it would fall out and she would live, but it spread to the other eye and she died right as I was contemplating putting her down because she was in pain. I buried her next to Flame :(

As for the tanks, like I said they are in the process of renovation. I need to replace the sand in the 15 gallon, and I am looking into some nice driftwood and more silk plants for them all. I did replace the black background in the 5.5 gallon with a blue one today because it was just too dark in there. The light is only 8 watts, and I couldn't see Prof. Lupin's color at all in most parts of the tank.

The worst thing is that I am painting/redecorating my bedroom and I have a shelving unit full of empty shelves. No kidding....there's nothing to put in them *except for more betta tanks* shhh! I didn't say that seriously...what am I crazy! I'm already going to be really busy with school, a possible job, and sports!
