Hanging Betta Fish Tank | Installation

by Fish Tank on July 24, 2006

Yesterday, the Hanging Betta bowl was installed. This fish tank wasfish-tank-072406a1.jpg fairly easy to hang on the wall. The hanging fish tank came with a screw and the tank, and that's it.

This fish tank is obviously not as elaborate as this aquarium. It is perfect for me though. I can now turn to my left and see my new Crowntail Betta. The scientific name of this fish is Betta Splendens. He or she is red. The red-colored variety weren't as popular for some reason at the fish store I picked Pat up at. I havn't determined the sex of the fish yet, so Pat will have to do.

I'd like to note that you can hang this Betta fish tank in drywall directly. The screw was made for that.  The weight limit was listed at 20 pounds.
I had some green gravel from the previous freshwater aquarium setup, so it was washed thoroughly and used. I had a fake plant, but it was too large. This fish tank needs some environment, so I'll need to make a trip to Petco.

There was a silver cap included that would cover the screw and make it look nicer. I decided to leave it off. It looks fine as you can see from the pictures. A row of 3 of these fish-tank-072406a2.jpghanging fish tanks would be fun. I don't have the wall space for it though. For now, the Crowntail Betta is just right.

Do you have a special fish tank for your Betta, freshwater, or saltwater fish?

A fish tank doesn't just have to sit on an aquarium stand. This hanging fish tank for Bettas shows that.

Hanging Fish Tank for a Betta

by Fish Tank on July 21, 2006

fish-tank-072106a1.jpgWhen I was in Petco today picking up some gravel for the freshwater fish tank I spotted this hanging fish tank on sale for 25% off, or $15. You can never have enough fish tanks! This little aquarium is called a Hanging Betta Bowl. It's made by Aquatic Gardens. I notice that Petco carries many items from Aquatic Gardens.

I'm going to hang this fish tank next to me by my computers. I think I'll get a red colored betta to occupy this new fish tank. As you might know, it's not a wise idea to put two siamese fighting fish in the same aquarium. They'll fight to the death.

I also believe I'll name this new fish Pat. I usually don't name my fish. Only the bettas.

This fish tank looks fairly easy to hang and assemble. In fact I found a few people who gave a review of the tank. Some people wished it would sit on a table too. You can't please them all! Most of the reviews said the fish tank was easy to hang. I'll be hanging it below a picture I've got up. I know there's a stud in the wall there.

fish-tank-072106b.jpgSo this will give me three fish tanks. The freshwater tank, and two smaller fish tanks holding bettas. Do you have a hanging fish tank? Is it big? Id like to see it. If you're looking for a small out of the way fish tank, this betta bowl is perfect. It looks easy to clean. I'll be sure to let you know. Bettas are fun and vibrant fish to watch for very little money.
