I'm offically contageous!

Two of my bettas are at work with me, a 5 gallon on one side of the computer, a 2.5 on the other. Well, after enjoying my fish so much, one of my co-workers decided she had to have a betta in her office too.
I got online and showed her which tank to get, a 5 gallon setup, then I ordered her a sponge filter and pump from ebay as I knew the power filter that came with it would be too strong, and set it all up for her when it all came in.
This is her new working betta!

That tank is a Hawkeye 5 gallon. I have four of them and they all came from Walmart for $26. Sorry I answered for waterdog, but I love these tanks! Here's the link:

They usually arrive fast. I've always had them shipped to my home.

Exactly right! Like I said, the power filter that came with it was way too strong, and being the firm believer in sponge filters that I am, I got on ebay and ordered her a filter and an adjustable air pump for $15 for both. So far seems to be working perfectly.

I've been using the filter that came with it, but I modified them. I don't use the carbon filter cartridges. I bought some filtration foam and put that in the filters and baffled the output. Half my fish love the filter current and the other half hate it. They are all fine with these filters the way I modified them. But the filters are way too strong like waterdog said, and will push your betta around around if not changed in some way.
