So how's the barracks coming on? Many occupants yet?
What's the smallest tank you can do this with?

The betta barracks is coming along really well just getting ready to put the males in today will have to post some more pictures when they are up and running, mine is a 2ft and mick's is 3ft you have to be careful due to the extra weight of that glass so I would have thought 2ft would be the smallest personally but I couldn't really say for sure.

Came back from the doctors this afternoon to find that one of the males had jumped in with one of the other males and another one had jumped in to the back of the tank so had to quickly fish them out lol, haven't had chance to take the photo's with my hand not being too good but will try and take some tonight and post on either tonight or tomorrow.

I have put a condensation tray over the top for now but I might have to reduce the amount of water in it and see if that helps

I have some pond plants on the way as they are floating plants and will hopefully help my male in the nano tank with his bubble nest but it's just an experiment at the moment
