Betta Tank Ideas Please!
Posted 25 September 2009 - 04:57 PM
Im looking to create the most natural environment (well as natural as can be in a tank) for him.
I have a 3.5 gallon tank, will this be enough?
Also would it be ok to keep small shrimp in with him?
Any help much appreciated

I would personally put a thin amount of sand in there, so as not to take up too much space, a wall of plants along the back so he has somewhere to hide (And that you can put in front of the filter / heater) and then a little cave half buried in the sand (Though you could use gravel, but sand is generally a hell of a lot cheaper)
Shrimps are a touchy area, some betta's think their fantastic snacks, others will live in harmony with them. Sometimes they'll live in harmony for a year and then bam! It's shrimp for lunch. Really depends on the temperment of your betta
Also, welcome, fellow Essex-er!

There is no need to hide filter as its built into the hood its a "moby dick" tank. Ive never seen these tanks before untill i was given this one, if anyone knows of these tanks...do you think the filtration system will be ok?
Do you think it would be best to put the shrimp in first maby?
Rezz do you know of any GOOD fish shops around your area because the only one i no of near me is Swallows in Rayleigh

I think it may help a bit if the shrimp go in first. If the betta goes in first he might get too terratorial.
And I'm afraid I am no where near Rayleigh, I'm up near Colchester if your willing to make the trip I use the Tollgate Seapets for equipment and Either Silverton aggregates aquatics or Frinton on sea aquatics for livestock, though I have yet to see bettas in either of those too, seapets do stock bettas but generally they have pretty rough stock so I personally wouldn't buy livestock there
