ricbennett3 Posted May 20 Share Posted May 20 This is my son’s betta, Darkin. I thought I’d take a second and document how he came to be today. It all started in Pet Co, naturally (gasp!, I know). I’ve had tanks on and off for 30 years, so was pretty happy to pick up this guy for my little guy. My son designed his first tank. A little 2.5 gallon. Looked like this: Eventually, I was able to talk him into letting me try, just as I was getting into the aquascaping idea. The tank went through a few versions: At some point, I decided I needed a rimless tank, and got inspired by a photo I’d seen of a dragon stone tunnel and made this: I never could get the plants to grow right, battled many types of algae, and couldn’t really get in there to do maintenance without knocking everything all over the place. I liked the look and managed to keep it functional about a year…which brings us to today. I decide I wanted to try a jungle triangle layout, so set Darkin up in a holding tank, and set this up: SpongeBob had to make a come back, or at least my son convinced me of such. Is this the only UNS rimless Aquascape with a SpongeBob house? Maybe, but there’s also $60 in co-op plants, so… that’s the story. Hoping Darkin makes the transition well. He’ll be in the holding tank another couple weeks while levels balance. Lots of re-used media and whatnot so shouldn’t be too long. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
