My betta bowl.

Recommended Posts

First let me introduce the betta.

This is Cesar. He's a doubletail. He has a little kink right before his tail and is very sassy.

Now his home.

It's a 2.5 gallon bowl. With a small group of red ramshorns.

Don't you love planted bowls? Such an interesting challenge to aquascape on a nano scale. And Cesar is a lovely betta.

Wow it looks very nice!

I'd love to have a similar betta bowl set up, but most vases I find are too small or too awkwardly shaped to be able to clean properly. Still, very nice and modern betta bowl! :)

I found a really cool bowl at Target. It's really a vase that's 14 inches tall, and 10 inches wide at the widest point - about 6 inches wide at the top. I liked it so much after I planted it, I went back and got another to plant some succulents in.

After putting the dirt with the gravel cap in, and a skinny little piece of driftwood with my plants, it holds just a tad more than 2 1/2 gallons of water. I'm using the little 7.5 Hydor disk heater in it for my betta. It keeps the temp dead on at 78F.

That's awesome! The ones I find always have an extremely small opening :)

Needs a proper 40 litre + tank and proper filtration. :(

in her situation the plants are the filtration , its all in the book the method of planted aquariums by Diane walstad

Once a planted aquarium is established and well planted the plants take care of the ammonia and other stuff in the water :)
