    Set up and cycling a new tank. I might add in plants later from the main tank.

    It has an Aquaclear 20. Florescent lighting. No heater right now, but the temperature is still around 80F.

    I added my betta from the 40. He was nipping the danios and tetras.

    Bought this dude from the bottom rack at Petco. He reminds me of the first betta I got. His tail is a bit messed up from the store, hopefully he'll heal back up.

    You're cycled and I'm so jealous lol. Been trying to cycle a 20 gallon tank for about 7 weeks.

    Your tank looks so pretty, though! I love the castle.

    Thank you, I did cheat with leftover safestart and seeded media from my 45 gallon.

    Update: 7/25/17

    Added 2 more layers to the divider to reduce aggression. Now they barely notice each other.

    I also added some Pothos to the filter. And 2 MTS to each side.

    The water lettuce is growing really well. Some of the roots are already halfway towards touching the substrate!

    Both Bettas are doing really well.

    Lol I just now thought that since one Betta has a castle and the other has a rock, I guess one Betta lives in a castle and the other is homeless and living under a rock lol .

    LOL, well it's a piece of driftwood. So one is all natural with wood and a plant, while the other gets a stone castle.
