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.

Tank looks very nice. I have that same bridge in with one of my bettas. He loves to sleep under it.

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.

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!

I love the coloring on your Betta! And the tank looks great! Good job!
