Tank Changes

  1. Bithimala Well Known Member Member

    I thought it might be fun to see before and after pics of people's tanks. Mine have gone through so many changes since I started in the hobby, and when I look back at what I had initially, I feel so bad for the fish. I did think it was really good at the time though...

    Here's my starting 5.5 gallon with 4 danio and Whatley.

    And here's what it has become.

    This was my 36g bowfront when I first set it up 3 years ago.


    And this is the same tank now. It got broken down and re-set up. The restart was last summer.

    Here is my current before and after photo. By the way my tank is not finished yet, I'm changing my substrate from gravel to sand on Tuesday. I'll post another picture once I make the switch.


    Here is the new substrate:

    Here is the new substrate:


    What is that? Silica sand or regular garden variety sand?

    It's coming along nicely!

    Thankyou. Just had a bit of upheaval with the sand. It was too thick and was grey and stinky on the right half (all explained in another thread by me) so it had to go. The sand bed much thinner now

    Thought it would be fun to show how much I've learned about betta-keeping! [​IMG] This was the tank Python was in when I got her. [​IMG] Here's the "upgrade" I got for her. [​IMG] Here's the 2.5 gallon when it was first set up. [​IMG][​IMG] And here's the tank now! Hoping to upgrade to a 5 gallon and add live plants and an air-powered corner filter soon, there's always room for improvement!

    Lovely upgrade

    It's nice to see someone putting betas in a filtered, lit, and aquascaped environment. Too many get a stagnant bowl of water. Keep up the good work it looks great!

    You guys have done some really great renovations and upgrades! Very nice!

    Love all the Betta tanks. They're one fish whose tanks I really like seeing above most others.

    Yeah there you go! Much better picture! Looks great! That statue is awesome and it really ties it all in.

    I'm wondering where the filter is. Where is it may I ask? Also like @silistertrench said the statue does tie the tank together

    The filter is actually built into the back part of the tank... just incase you wanted to check it out here's the link.... and ty
