Skyewillow, the information you provided was very useful, and for that, I thank you. I was thinking about purchasing a Fluval Spec III until I saw the prices of them at the LFS. I think it would be best to find a nice glass 5 gallon aquarium at Meijer or Walmart or perhaps online. If I want to go to Petco or Petsmart, I have to make a 30 minute to an hour long drive, which isn't safe to do right now because of the weather and condition of my vehicle.
What do you think of those Aqueon Mini Bow tanks? I know the one I'm looking at isn't the 5 gallons that I would prefer to have, and is gently used, but it's at least 2.5 gallons, which seems to be plenty of room for a single Betta. It appears to be a decent tank, with the small issue of lighting and filter flow, but it's always best to get the opinion of someone more experienced.
