I decided I would contribute to the horrid Betta in a cup practice and liberated a Half Moon Betta from Petco. I had not really paid any attention to Betta fish in the years I have been in the hobby and had missed the variety in breeds - all I was familiar with was the common type until I started looking at pictures on fish lore.

So I hereby introduce Theseus and his new home. While the tank has been totally renovated the filter is fully cycled. The furball in the top left is Isis. The cats have taken a liking to watching the new kid.

And here are some close ups. Color is bad. I'm no fish photographer.

He seems to be enjoying his new home and really loves winding through the hornwort and picking at things.

So I'll be keeping a close eye on these forums and hopefully contributing as I learn more about these little guys. Not fully satisfied with the minimalist aquascaping but it sure is a different look for me.

Welcome! What a handsome guy. He looks so tiny in there, making like the intrepid explorer. Isis is very striking as well.

Tank is a 10 gallon. Glad you like the decor. I'm not sold yet but it is growing on me.

Thanks all!

I love the look on your cat's face... "I'm not doing anything!"

I've set up some dividers in the tank using the diy process (binder clips ftw!) and Theseus will have some never seen tank mates in a few weeks. Also going to pick up the petco bookshelf aquarium next pay day - so soon my home office will contain many bettas

I guess I can wait a bit for artificial gravity induced inertial dampening! Someday we can have fish on wheels - or flying! :;ufo

I have one of the 6.6 bookshelf tanks... small but with lots of room for stretching fins! It houses Louie (betta) and a mystery snail wonderfully.

He's still beautiful but he lives condo style now in a 20 gallon long.

Actually, since that video was taken his apartment was "upsized" to around 7 gallons as his snail neighbor (and new wife) now lives in the 10 gallon

He loves compliments. Not as much as he likes food, but he likes em!

err... the snail has a new wife. This is still Texas.

Actually, I am quite scandalized by just how often mystery snails feel compelled to fornicate. It was unexpected. ???:-[:-X

I thought you meant the snail was his neighbor and his new wife.
