You'll need $20 for the 2.5G plastic tank kit & $20 for a heater
$42 total with tax.
Get a filter, heater & NEW 10G glass tank with NO LID for $45.
I agree that 10 gallons are a much better option.
BUT if you dont have the money, or room for another 10 gallon, like me, you can get the 2.5 for $20, and then order a heater on amazon, I got some betta sticks on there for like $5 a piece just now plus $8 shipping. Not too shabby! comes out to about 27.00 a piece (if you buy 4)
