Major Rescape of Betta Tank & Anubias Flower

Hey everyone! Today I made some major changes to my 6 gallon planted betta tank, and wanted to show the updates! This tank has been up for almost a year now, and I love it!

This is the first time I got up the nerve to split my anubias nana, and I attached one piece to the driftwood. I took out a majority of the java moss and attempted to reattach a few patches of it.

Rescape:


Here is a picture of one of my red cherry shrimp hanging out between the river rocks:


Here is a picture of a new snail I found in my dad's tank and brought home because I thought he was cute! I'm a sucker for snails for some reason. Does anyone know what kind he is?


And here is the begining stages of my anubias nana bloom. I will be posting more when it opens up:


Also, if anyone has any ideas for anything to add to the tank, let me know! I'm definitely open to suggestion

It looks great! I can't wait to see the flower pictures!


Your little shrimp and snail are adorable! I'm thinking about getting some shrimp for my frog's planted tank, I've always loved them LOL. I had an army of mini snails too, but I don't know where they went now.

Aw awesome tank!!! I'm so jealous! I've been trying to get my hands on java moss but bc of it's growth and the way it takes over, the pet stores here don't sell it often (if at all). I want to upgrade my little guy's tank but have no space atm. ^^ Your betta looks like our Lakitu!
