Mr Betta's ugly new home ;)

It looks half decent. I took the old tank from the marbled crays and put mr. Betta in there. I didn't scrub the hard water stains off though :/

I had just filled the tank with straight well water. Very cold so I had to double up on the heaters to get the temp up so I can move him over.

The betta will love you for it and that's all that matters =]

It sounds cheesy, but I've found that a background with pictures of plants go a long way when you don't have a really full/finished tank. As long as you don't have any planted tank snobs coming over, it really does the trick!
"I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him or her. Will she gain anything by it? Will it restore her to a control over her own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to freedom for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away."

Found among the papers of Mohatma Gandhi

How can you live with yourself for keeping a betta in such deplorable conditions? Put him in a tiny bowl where he belongs.
