My one year anniversary of owning my betta is coming up and I decided in celebration to upgrade him from his 10 gallon to a 20 gallon long. I've been taking my time with it and I've only ever really put thought into one other tank design (his current one). I like it so far and hopefully he will be moving in by the end of the month.

This is his current set up. Not pictured is the pothos and wandering jewel plants I have hanging out of the side

And this is the new one so far. Note that I only have it half full as I am still changing things around. The gravel and sand is low in some places as I will be moving the substrate from his current one into the new one. I will also be moving the mopanI wood and the rest of his plants. Also apologies for the super yellow lights, I bought a grow light for his aquarium as I have added many more plants and his old light is just too small and weak.

The mopanI wood will be going sort of across the back and a little to the left. I'm hoping to place his java ferns around it but am unsure yet.

I just wanted to show people what I've done so far, I'm really proud of myself. His first tank was a 7g plastic bin with fake plants and some halloween petsmart ornaments and now here I am just under a year later with a much bigger tank filled with real plants and significantly more natural decor. I hope he likes it.

Very nice, I’m sure he’ll enjoy his upgrade

Update;

Tank is complete and Lazarus has moved in. He seems to enjoy it thus far and already has a new favourite sleeping spot. Please excuse the debris all over the substrate- its from the mopanI and catappa leaves.

And here is the boy himself. Hes bloated right now because he decided to eat half of the snails algae wafer like a dang fool. His fins have looked like this pretty much the whole time I've had him and haven't changed in a very long time.
