    While I liked the wine glass idea, I didn't think it showed up very well.
    So I appropriated a cup and saucer from the wife's curio cabinet ......:;nin2
    I think it looks a little better this way.

    I definitely like the new look. They match the substrate really well. :clapping:

    If it's safe for people to eat off of and dishwasher safe, it's likely freshwater aquarium safe. :;th

    That's kind of what I was thinking.

    I have some really pretty painted wine glasses, that would have looked good also, but I didn't dare to use them.

    I love it! The tank really stands out now and looks great. Your betta is beautiful by the way. I love his orange-ish coloration.
