Is this aquarium good for a betta?

My betta is currently in a 8 l bowl. I've been looking for a bigger aquarium and I think im going to buy him a 30l aquarium next week >> http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B000...A3JWKAKR8XB7XF << (that's the aquarium I stopped at) I hope it'd be a good home for my betta. I'd be happy to know what you guys think about the aquarium and if you have any suggestions on size and stuff please share :))

Btw, i have a question. My betta's upper fin, the one that's on his back looks a little curled up at the end, is that normal or is he sick? also his tail is kinda weird at the end too, and there's this cut or something on it that i have no idea how he got, there is nothing sharp in his bowl to hurt him :( is it possible that the water is too hard for him? and im going to buy a water conditioner for his new tank, do u think that will help him? ... Thanks

Wow, I just looked at that Aquarium, and it is nice..I want one too..and It is wonderful to see you upgrading to such a nice tank, I know he will love it, use some silk plants, and some real ones, and it will make for a great hiding place, and bettas love to play in and out of the plants, also have a cave or 2 for him to also rest, and sleep, I will load up some of my personal faves, that my bettas love:) or pix..when I can..

Oh, and regard to his fins, maybe because his livingspace is small, and the fins can't spread out, they sometimes get stuck together, also if your not using water conditioner, would be a good idea to do so, that is important to do, You can get some stress coat, it is wonderful for curled and stuck fins.
