Question I found some tanks..Advice?

So keep in mind, I have $28.89 right now, and I MIGHT have more as time goes on. Here are some tanks I found on amazon (They're cheaper than Petsmart)

These are in my price range:

Tank 1

This is out of my price range:

Tank 1

Tank 2 (my favorite)

Tank 3

And if I'm really desparate
A 2 gallon :/

I really have no idea what to do

Baby Buddha(M VT) ~ Oddball (M-DeTxHM)~ Little Chai ~ Lucky(F oto)

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

I actually like the one in your price range. You could divide it you know. I hope everything works out for you buying the tank. :)

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

walmart sells a 10 gallon kit including the glass tank, filter, and hood with light. Online it is sold for $37 but I have been to several walmarts that sell it for $30 in store! You could always divide it I have this for my female and it is great!

thanks guys :)

I was actually thinking about dividing it, especially if I get anything 5 gallons or more.

There is also this tank

2.5 gallons is enough for a betta, so I don't see why I wouldn't be able to divide it if it's a 5 gallons :)

If you go with the first one you would have money left over for gravel and plants and any decorations you want. I have the one that is your favorite I really do like it I got it from Wag.com on sale for 35.00 I will check and see if its still on sale, was two months ago when I got mine. Plue any orders over 49.oo is free two day shipping.

Just checked and they have it for 44.99 but you get 15 percent off your first order with them not sure who much that would off cause I am bad at math..lol Check it out Wag.com

Remember the Light at the end of the tunnel may be You.

I think I'm 80% sure I'm getting the 5 gallon :3

They even have a 10 gallon, but that's something I have to lug back and forth during breaks xD

Does anyone have a 5 gallon tank that looks like that they can show me? :3

Walmart has this 5 gal kit as well, including filter & hood. Just like the 10 gal, it is cheaper in store.

My madre said that I could get the 5 gallon, the one in my price range, and most likely. I'm getting a needle point canvas thing for the divider. Buddha is fairly calm so I'm not afraid of him flaring much. I don't want to spend $10 on a divider :/

Here is another in your price range..

It's not about the aquarium, though. It is the fish and how well you take care of it.

that one is actually the same as the other, except more money o.O

Weird.

Well, I actually bought the one I posted, the one in my price range. And I'm going to AC moore to get the material for the divider :)
