It comes with
Glass tank
Hood with light
Powerfilter
Starter samples of food
Instructions on water care
So you would need gravel...a heater and decorations!! Do you think your dad would buy that? I hope this helped....
I don't think so...they said they want a "small" tank to be able to fit...they think a 5gallon is huge. >.>''

the best I could manage is a 3 gallon...but thats only if they would pay for it...but they wont...I know this.

I managed to get a medium critter keeper...it was only 13 dollars around that...(looks like I'll be getting more bettas at that price...>=3 when I get more money that is...)

Anyway...it's a little bare-ish now...but I managed to get a big shell for a hide...and a big leafed silk plant.

and some white rocks...since he's mostly dark colors...so it will lighten him up a bit.

Wow, I really admire you holding out for a bigger tank for your fish, before you get the fish! that is awesome! One thing I keep hearing is not to put shells in betta tanks because they leech and can harm the betta FYI.

sjones: yeah I noticed that and I took it out, I'm gonna get a new hide for him when we get him. Also I did change the water completely so it should be good by now.

truthequalslies: my walmart isn't like that...it's like 50-80+ dollars for a 10gallon. ._. besides that seems a little big...I wouldn't have room for that tank and berry's tank...unless I use just the 10 gallon and seperate it for 5 gallon for each of em...but thats most likely later on in the future...

Also a funny thing....

Since I put the new tank there, berry has NOT stopped looking at it...he sticks to the side of the tank where he can see the new tank and he is just stareing at it...does he see something I don't?...or is he just curious...this morning was funny too...I got up to feed him...and he was "extra" cuddlely today...he was pushing against the wall of the tank to get to me and he was really hyper...maybe he just loves food?...or maybe he's trying to suck up so he doesn't go into the smaller tank...XD

Berry is trying to suck up to ya.... XD Poor boy. All my bettas get jealous when I set up a new tank, because they know that a new tank = a new betta.
