this is very interesting. what do you guys do about heaters and filters? do you cut holes in the lid? i'd like to use a clip on filter with it http://www.amazon.com/Hagen-A286-Mar...4&sr=1-1-fkmr0

is that possible to rig up?

I'd say that the current would be too much for the Betta, finding a filter under 5 gallons is pretty hard unless it came with the tank itself. Even then those filters are pretty harsh with their strong currents.

You'd have to do almost the same amount of water changes anyways with or without a filter in a Kritter Keeper.

Heater, just go with a Elite Submersible 25w Pre-set Heater. Or any other heater that's pre-set and around 25w.

Filters for under 5 gallons or 5 gallons I would recommend the Marinara slim series, they have adjustable flow, the pump is also in the tank with a pre filter sponge. It is actually nice, I have it in my shrimp tank and has more media then the filter that came with my 5 gallon.

yeah that's the one i linked. so if i got a critter keeper with this type of clip on filter is it easy to cut the lid or would this require some dremeling?
