Wanted - Cheap Tank


My 10 Gallon tank has just broken, and I have nothing to put my betta in. For now he is in a small little tank.

I live in Canada and the cheapest tank around for just a tank is $35.

Anyone have one they don't need and could sell cheaply?

Thanks :)

I think craiglist is available for Canada... check there!
You would also check second hand stores, I've seen tanks at Goodwill for $8.
Most members here are in the US and anything shipped to you will be very expensive.

You might want to try getting a critter keeper for really cheap money in the meantime.

Hope you find something soon.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Larger critter keepers (3 gallon-5gallon) can be great permanent home for your betta and try to ask your friends or your family to see if they know someone that sell the tanks cheaper or giving the tanks away.

Good luck!

oh man! if you were in the US i'd send you an empty 10 (nothing but the tank) for like, 15 bucks plus shipping. Walmart has 10 gallon kits for like, 30 here so they might be similarly priced or a little more up in Canada? Also empty tanks for 13 bucks here.

I think I have something coming from someone! So I should be good!

Thanks for all the suggestions...

An empty 10 gallon with nothing is 35$ at the walmart nearest me. So that was a no go lol

Shipping a glass tank is going to be a lot of money. Sakura was gonna ship me her's a while ago and they said it would be like $60 to ship it and we live in the same state!
