Yup! filter and heater go in the white section in the tank. There is loads of room for ceramics, average flow from the filter ( which iirc is adjustable ) so perfect for a Betta. Light is alright and kind of built in.

Thanks fr499y. Your right the flow is adjustable. I was looking into it last night.

Does the ceramic go in the filter side of the box or where the heater will go?

yup :) i think it comes with a small bag of something and a sponge. It's been a few years since I've seen one in person.

Now to decide what I'm going to do inside. [woo]

Well today is officially the start of my next adventure.

Me and zarra went to maidenhead aquatics in dobbies garden centre.

On finding the supafish home 40 it looked a bit small so then I looked at the fluval flex tanks. But cant get away with the mesh around them.

Then I stumbled on the supafish home 60. It was on sale for £100 and looked just right for where it is going to go. Tank sorted.

Then I spotted a nice big azalea root so I grabbed that, opened the home 60 display tank up and test fit it. It's just what i wanted.

Next we rang round some LFS and found one that stocked seachem flourite. We drove there and found some nice rocks in the shop. I was gutted when I realised they only had one bag of each flourite in stock. I got a bag on flourite dark. I was going to go for black but decided this would be look better against the black tank surround.

I'm off to have a bit mess around with it all now.

You'll want some broad-leaved plants for the betta to rest on. ;)

I've been wondering what sort of hight the broad plants should be.

The will be water lettuce going in for some shade as well. And I really like the way the roots hang in the water.
