Spec III has a betta, an amano shrimp and one pink ramshorn.

I fell in love with bettas and their sassy personalities. 2 of the 5g sit on my computer desk where they keep my company. The Spec III is on my wife's desk with her betta. The other tanks came along as the bettas did except for the 20 long. The store sold me hillstream loaches as being appropriate for a tropical tank. Nope. So I set up a river tank for them. They were sick by the time it was cycled and didn't make it, so I stocked it with long fin zebra danios and a type of cory that prefers cooler water. It's my prettiest tank and easiest to care for.
SignatureSure, there's always room for one more betta.
