I have been planning to upgrade my bettas 20L tank to a bigger one, since he really enjoyed living in my 54L for a while, while his 20L was cycling. He has a nipping problem, and always does it after water changes or when he is bored. He also looses finnage randomly and rapidly if he sees his reflection, but it never progresses into rot which is strange. I don't know why he looses finnage, but it literally takes 5 minutes for his nice regrowth to be shredded from flaring at his reflection.
I hoped upgrading would help him and stop him nipping, and whaddayano. Reflection problem again even with the new tank! Luckily, a few pieces of paper solved that issue! He has been in the tank for three days now and all I see is regrowth after a little loss of fins from the move. I mixed rocks I had left over with the rocks in his tank, put them in the new tank, and siphoned the water across. I acclimatised him properly though when I moved him back in due to the temperature drop in the container I had him in.
Anyway, all of my tanks are blue planet aquariums. I don't specifically go out to buy that tank, but it is always the best deal. I could have gotten a 70L blue planet tank for the same price that I got the 40L for, but I did not like how tall it was in contrast to how thin it was. It was really ugly proportions :/ So I got the 40L which comes with a filter, and a light
Here are the photos! I really like the mix of rocks! Turned out to look really nice!
Since I have a spare 20L, I am contemplating getting another betta for it, but this time a plakat. Sadly, I am getting rid of the two females this weekend as I feel the lady I am giving them to will be able to give them a much better home with other females!
What do you think?
