It's just a basic tank, so you'd still need to get a heater and thermometer. But the price of the tank itself, I think, is very good.
Whoa now! I feel the need to upgrade! That's a fantastic deal.

It's their regular price on it. I keep considering getting it. But then, I'd contemplate starting a sorority.... LOL

I looked at it. It is nice but I will need to buy the lid, heater, filter and lighting and at that point it would be cheaper to buy a tank that has all that with it

Agree... cheaper to buy the kit, as just the hood + tank will cost more than the kit ;)

I am looking around to find something that is big enough but doesn't cost much. I am glad that Myates agrees that it is cheaper to buy a kit than to buy a plan tank.

I've recently purchased a few 10s and 30gs, and small tanks (less than a gallon), so I've seen a bunch of different tanks and figuring out prices. Just be careful as some kits don't always come with heaters - but for tanks 10g and under, the heaters are pretty cheap. Walmart has a Tetra 25w one for 2-15g tanks that works well.. I have a couple that I use with no problems.

lol females can be trouble.. just looked over at my 6g divided tank with my oldest pair and saw the female (Anya) bully her snail down from the side of the tank.. it was in her feeding spot, apparently she was worried it would get in the way come feeding time lol.. poor snail!

well i looked up a heater and i can get a heater that heats up to 10 gallon tanks for $15. which is cheap. What I look for in a tank is a filtration system and LED lighting not incandescent. If you can find me one of those 10 gallon tanks for that for less than $50 then you will have my attention.

I found this one instead. It is a little more but it has the LED lighted hood with day and night lighting and filtration system. It is a 10 gallon tank as well. Then I can buy 2 more females and my tank will be complete or I may buy other fish. You can put betta females with other types of fish that are freshwater fish or no?!

I currently have one of those. Not too bad, have one divided in half, another in 3 sections.

I don't know of any LED lighted tanks that are in kits that are large tanks that isn't a small fortune - most come with the basic light bulbs or florescent (such as the bookshelf posted above).

You can purchase LED lighting for 10 gallons at Walmart separately, but unsure of their prices.. I stick with other lighting because of the live plants that I use.

Edit: didn't see your last post for some reason when I started typing.. d'oh!

That's a nice looking tank.. and not too bad of a price, and it comes with a heater.. F&S tend to have good quality items for a good price, where I get my double tank racks. They send them pretty quickly too..
