Wild Scapes


Recommended Posts

Thought this would be a good place for everyone to post pictures of how they scape their tanks with wild bettas.

Do you take a minimalistic approach or try to re create their natural home?

I'm sure either maddie will get some photos today or tomorrow we will upload some of our "scales"

In the past I went for a more of a biotope style with my wild betta tanks. I used peat moss as substrate with wood and IAL providing most of the cover. However, nowadays while my tanks are still fairly natural looking, I have gotten rid of the peat moss substrate (instead I have a stocking full of peat moss floating in each of my wild tanks) and use ADA aquasoil because it helps keep my plants growing.

Because I wanted to cut way down on water changes to keep my parameters stable, I use a lot of live plants. So far my fish seem to be thriving and it makes for a lot less work for me which is great.

This is how most of my tanks look currently



The only thing I would like to change about these tanks is make the water darker. There's no such thing as too much tannins *lol*
