    Herewith pics of two my planted betta tanks. Didn't take udpated pics of the others yet

    Oh yes, I ripped some plants out of the 2nd tank last week to put in another tank, so excuse the middle being a bit empty.

    His trim on the outside are all black. He looks much better under color enhancement tubes though

    any chance of a closeup? I know this thread isnt about him! but im curious now to see a closeup!

    I see you using a HOB filter, you ever had a problem with them? Im quite skeptical when it comes to HOBs!

    Close-up pics are on the forum somewhere...can't remember for the life of me which thread it's in :( Have a search or browse through

    I have no problems with HOB. I love it so much that my planted 1.2m angel tank only has a HOB as a filter and does the job perfectly.

    Re open-top tanks, I don't get dust on the water surface. Actually quite a good question speedz....never even had any dirt on top of the water. However, I have lost a betta male because he got over-eager and jumped out of his tank. It is very unlikely for betta males to jumpers; females are the ones that jump a lot.
