My Betta Tank: The River Bed

This tank was designed around the same time I designed the Golf Course tank.  I have gone weary of using stem plants, so the Buddha Tank set up was scrapped and out came the River Bed design.  I wanted a snapshot of what a slow moving river bed would look like: dead leaves, twigs, random garbage and all...  Was very happy how this set up looked nice and clean without the rigorous maintenance some of my previous tanks needed.








Set up: Low tech, 3 wpg (adjusted photoperiod), liquid ferts 
Plants list: marimo moss, christmas moss, anubias nana, anubias barteri (all non substrate dependent)
Stock: Betta (Blu Dot!)
Misc: clean (boiled, even) aluminum can with sanded edges.  no worries, it only looks sharp, but it really isn't.

How big was the tank? I really want to get a Betta but I don't know what size would be good...?

I thought Betta's had to have a cover to keep them from jumping out of the tank?

what kind of gravel is that?

Have you ever had any problems with slight tearing in the fins with more jagged gravel?

I have seen fin tearing on jagged gravel, yes! These in particular aren't very rough/jagged though, it only looks like it on the photos.

@hobokengirl This is a nano finnex 4 gallon tank but I believe this particular model is no longer in production :(
