I guess that member from a while ago was wrong. But still if you could fit a heater in it would work.

Oh yes! A heater! Is there a way to put a heater in there? Betta are tropical fish ya know

I did some figuring and here are my rough estimates. The first is the initial gallons for the "main" tank area. The second is the area for different cup sizes.
12x3x15 = 2.34gal
12x3x16 = 2.48ga

Cups
3x3x3 = + 0.1gal
3x3x4 = + 0.14gal
3x4x4 = + 0.19gal
4x4x4 = + 0.22 gal

Cho, the tank is sealed at the top. And my estimates were for the increased water volume for different dimentions of the small "cup" area on the front so that BB could add the main tank to the cup to see which he (or she?) likes best.

BB, let me know if you need any other dimentions worked out okay?

I just had a thought. What if you made the cup 4x4x5 with 5 being the hight, but leave the top 1in without water. Then, the lid could be placed inside a grove in the cup! You could still use latches or just add fingerholes! Don't forget that you need airholes. Would it be possible to do that and still have enough surface room for the Betta to come up for air?

Hmmm. Im looking at this one.


http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...AvailInUS%2FNo

It says its 2.2 gallons. But Measures: 23.3" x 12.8" x 4.5" ???

Let me go to my gallon calculator thing.


It says its actually 5.8 gallons.


Ok I'm settled on 15 wide 12 tall 3 deep and a nice large bowl.
