Its one of thos half gallon kits. I would get larger as soon as possible! Also, u said ur goldfish lived 6 years. The average is about 30 years. Goldfish need large (20g) tanks with good filters too live to their full age tho

ya, sometimes pet stores lie. Not always on purpose, sometimes they don't know better, but nope they live a REALLY long time if given the proper living space! My grandma had a pair for almost 40 years!!!!!!!!!! they can live a portion of their life in a small tank like that, but then their insides grow, and their outsides don't so its really painful. (2 gallon bowl with goldfish in it) Google Image Result for http://pro.corbis.com/images/42-15556213.jpg?size=572&uid=%7BDDE85542-B2E0-4281-B3AB-37F428DA7506%7D they grow pretty large, too. Also, your betta will be ok in his half gallon for now. Just keep up the water changes, and get a larger tank when possible. For bettas a heater is more important that a filter. If the water temp. stays about 76 degrees or above you shouldn't need either tho

you can get one at the dollar store that is meant for using to measure water temp in cooking, but its accurate, and only a buck. I use this in all my tanks cuz the ones at pet stores are so expensive compared to this!

I would get a strainer or collander to put the gravel in and rinse it really good with hot water. Thats what I do.
