Hi! I've LOVED this tank setup for YEARS now! I now have a new apartment that this setup would look amazing in. Now, i'm ready to FINALLY try this out myself but i have a question. I've read so much on threads and blogs about how its unsafe to put dried bamboo in an aquarium. Toxins, Bacteria, Rot etc. What did you do to the bamboo to seal it or make it safe for the aquarium? I've read about marine epoxy, silicone sealer, kryon fusion, etc but i still cant find an EXACT answer. Also, where did you get the bamboo sticks from? Home Depot, Craft Store, etc. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me! Thank you so much for your time, I really appreciate it.

The baby's tears at the top. I'm wanting to add some at in my aquarium but how do you get it at the top of your tank? Everything I'm seeing says you have to plan it in your substrate. I don't really wanted at the bottom I would just like to have it across the top to baffle the flow of my pump. Do tell!

I will always want this tank, and never accomplish it. I set one up in inspiration of this one with a stature of Ganesh, as my very fisrt tankls but it always ended up degenerating from lack of patience and improper plant choice. Eventually I took the statue out as the paint was peeling. I may have discarded it but I hope not. I should try again with more patience and proper plant selection.
All of my current tanks have a natural appearance sans statues ect. but I'd love one like this.

Beautiful! Just one question: did you buy the Buddah in an ordinary store? did you have to boil it before putting it into the tank? I would like to put one too but I am scared the paint might intoxicate my fish... thanks!!!

Quick question for you betta experts, is $30 a lot for a betta? There's a black short-tail halfmoon (plakat?) and somef red halfmoons at my local fish store selling for $30. The black one's jet black with just a smudge of white on the ends of the front fins (or whatever they're called, sorry I'm still new to this) and the reds are well... red. There's also a blue halfmoon but its fins are kinda torn and there was barely enough water in there... Well anyway, are they worth it? Thanx in advance :3

You say there at your blog that you are going to add more branches and plants. For a Betta tank thats best and it looks better even though you like the more minimalist look the best. I swear Dude, someone could give you a plastic box, clump of weeds, and a couple of rocks and you'd make it look like a piece of art!

@piggylord32 it rotted eventually (around 6 months). Everything organic rots if exposed to water long enough, including driftwood (though driftwood rots /erodes reaaaaaallly slowly). The bamboo sticks i had were already dried/dead when I cut them off the mother plant. Then I cut them to smaller pieces and sun dried them for an additional 3 weeks or so.
fishkillernomore
fishkillernomore - 11 years ago
@LGITdude1 uhh yes and no. A fully submerged lucky bamboo won't last long underwater. BUT, you can keep them alive and healthy if you get ones that are tall enough where only the stems are underwater and all the leaves are above the water line. That said, you won't be able to put a top on your tank. I dont know of any other bamboo plants that can live on water.

@animallover201013 yessir/yesma'am. his favorite spot was by the filter. the water flow pushes the baby's tears away from it, so there was plenty of space for him to get air.

@stfumvs anything organic will rot in water eventually (driftwood, included). The bamboo lasted around 6 months before it had to be replaced. I believe proper preparation is key to long lasting bamboo: make sure it's completely dried.

@AsianburnsForlife hi! the floating plant is called baby's tears. But if have a 200 litre tank, you may want to consider something with slightly larger leaves to float. Maybe guppy grass. Or golden creeping jenny (it's actually a stem plant but you can float them).

I can't stop thinking about how much I like having this fish, and I kind of want to set up another tank for the other side of my computer now!

This guy has no idea what he's talking about, dont listen to him. Ich is present in ALL tanks, it just attacks the fish when its immune system is weak. For a good ich cure, raise the temperature of the tank slowly to 80~82F...add 2 teaspoons of aquarium salt per gallon of water. Also, do a water change every day, as well as dosing the tank for the new water you just added. The ich should go away within a few days.

And I just got a 10 gallon tank along with a young betta who flares at everything! very robust. lol. Any ideas for housing other fish in either or both tanks? ty:)

one day i noticed a white film on his eyes 2 days went by, he was acting perfectly normal and the fungus wasnt as visible as before, the the next day i woke up and a part of his back was white then later that night it kept getting worse. the next day he was laying on his side alot. i took him to the store to find out what kind of medicine i needed, when i got him home i put him in the tank with his medicine and about 30 min later he wasnt doing anything but breathing so i flushed him.

bought the buddha on ebay. The plants on top are called baby's tears. post vids when you're done with the tank! would love to see your interpretation of it.

bought the tank on ebay. I don't see it for sale anymore though... the nano cube by jalli (brand name) looks similar, but i dont like the trim too much.

fishkillernomore - 12 years ago
metal (zinc, i think...?) weights on the bottom. It's the same stuff that stores use to bunch aquatic plants together. You don't see them coz they're buried underneath the sand.

While its true they can live in puddles it is only ever temporary until the next rain comes along and fills the river again. And they only survive due to their ability to take oxygen from the air. Im sure if the fish could relay its preference to us it would pick something like the tank in this video over a muddy puddle.

fishkillernomore
fishkillernomore - 12 years ago
I'd like to take this chance to remind visitors that while a few might have success in keeping bettas with other bettas or fishy friends, this is not, I repeat, not recommended. The only exception to this rule are the wild bettas, but only with their kind, or if you are breeding like what Spichkey mentioned above. I hate to think that one kid will come home to a mess of dead bettas and fish because he/she read somewhere that they can co-exist peacefully in his/her fish tank.

you cant keep any other betta with a male betta. only exception is when breeding you intriduce the female but as soon as the job is done you take her out.

One of the greatest designs for a Betta tank I've seen. I have a question. Are the bambo-looking sticks real plants?
fishkillernomore
fishkillernomore - 13 years ago
Nope, the home made CO2 system I made failed lol! I was afraid to use the 2 liter bottles (which was working on the 10 gallon tank) on this 4 gallon tank. Thought it might be too much CO2 in such a tiny tank. The 12 ounce bottles I made did not create enough pressure to push the air through the glass bubbler. Either way, the plants were low maintenance so it didn't really need the extra co2.

ehehehe, sorry for the "via" overkill. Betta's like that whenever I stick my cam near the tank --- he no likey LOL!
fishkillernomore
fishkillernomore - 13 years ago
Yeah, the floating plants get pushed away by the filter on the left hand corner of the tank so there's space. Incidentally, that's also his favorite spot. I guess the soft rushing water against his tail calmed him down.
fishkillernomore
fishkillernomore - 13 years ago
Not really. There's a filter (see upper left hand corner of the vid). Water changes were done via syphoning the water out via an air tube. This was the 2nd easiest set up (read: low maintenance) I've ever had.
