    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to share my new betta tank setup for my boy Philip.

    I have him in a 5 gallon currently, but he has a sponge filter and I just haven't been a fan of how well it works. I had a spare 10 gallon lying around so I decided to whip something up. I found a canister filter for a 10 gallon tank at PetCo and I'm pretty excited about that.

    He has big plants and caves and other things his tank now, but he doesn't seem to like them, so I decided to go with the minimalist look.

    Looks pretty good to me! :) Where did you get that driftwood? I've been looking at some in my LPS but none of them seem finsafe and I'm scared they'll tear the betta's fins

    Looks pretty nice. I love the black substrate. You spoil your betta :)

    Thanks everyone!

    And I got it at my LFS. I have never used driftwood in a tank before and I wanted to try it. I boiled it for several hours last night as I was getting the canister filter set up, and it made it pretty soft. It doesn't quite feel like anything that will rip his fins.

    But to be fair, he probably won't even notice and will spend all of his time on the glass at the front of the tank, haha.
