So, Nebula, also known as "work betta" has become a bit sedentary. He was the Betta I kept from the three I took home from a petstupid that shrugged, looked at the fish, and said, "yup, those are probably gonna die overnight."
I got him in december. I tried to attach a picture, but Fishlore...
Man, I didn't want to respond because the discussion is so informative.
I knew so little about sumps, I hadn't even considered utilizing one (or two). I actually don't even begin to know how they work or how to make one. I'm sure y'all have threads about that somewhere though .

Edit: oh! and bubbles. I have an airstone in...
Probably, alas, it will take a while for that quantity of plants to propagate in my existing aquariums.
Thank you for the information and opinions everyone. I didn't expect it, having shared this originally as an attempt at humor.
