hhaahah i know, im full of questions!

Ok, so here is what i am going to do:

-tetra crescent 5 gal.
-25W heater
-bare-bottom
-HMPK or PK

The filter that comes with it is supposed to be phenomenal, so i think i am ok there.

Ok last but not least( i know, more questions haha), how should i decorate my tank? I would prefer low matinenece.

I clean my 10 gal. once a week 25%, are you sure that little 5 gal. wont need additional cleaning even with a filter? And yes, i always swish my cartridges :)

I haven't read through everyone's responses, but I found this picture:

And I thought I'd post for you since you were looking for decorating ideas :)

thanks, toad! I think i want to do bare-bottom, just for a change :)

I will still have enough bacteria, because of the bio-wheel and catridge in the marineland filter, am i right?

@toad, thanks!

HMPK it is!
Also, change of plans unfortunately measured where the tank will be and only can fit a 3, maybe 3.5 gal.

what about these tanks:

i like this one, but dont like the color changing lights

obviously without globefish:

how often would i clean it? It would be bare-bottom....

I'm currently using 2 Petco Bookself tanks for my DT and HM and they seem to love it. But I replaced the filter that came with the set up with a Tetra Whisper 10i. However, it has the footprint of a 10 gallon, so if you are worried about space it may be too long. :(

I personally would pass on the GLofish tank. You are paying for the light more than you are paying for the tank. No 3 gallon tank should be nearly $80 on sale. XD

If I had to choose between the Half Moon and the Cube shaped tanks, I would go for the Half Moon. I like tanks that have a bow shape in the front. I am currently cycling a Fluva 8 gallon cube tank I got used and it doesn't have the same look that my bow tanks have. Not to say one is better than the other, I just prefer one shape over the other. :)

thanks everybody so much!

I finally decided on a HM betta and the Eclipse Marineland 3 gallon aquarium with bio-wheel and fully integrated (good reviews!)

It will arrive in a few weeks!
