Additional Information I had something close to a biotope in mind with this. Betta pallifina comes from varied water environments ranging from stagnant peat swamps to clear flowing waters. What I aimed for is moderately acidic setup with a bit of flow. These are large Bettas with a good appetite, so I felt the need for a good filtration system and ample of vegetation to maintain water quality. I have added lots of catappa in there to create acidic environment.
