Yes that is a nice alternative tank, but I think $130 for it is a bit much. You could get a 10g for $10 and a hood with lamp made by the same company for $30, and then the filter cost maybe $20. That saves you about $70 so you have enough to by MORE BETTAS !!!!
Of course I have always been one for taking the cheap way out.

There are always cheap alternative, but it seems like they would like something more appealing to the eye.
I can't wait to see what you decide on. Post pics when it is all set up! :)

I agree completely, but I know better than to argue about kitchen decor with my wife . Luckily we found it on sale for $90 locally, and the heater was on sale too!

He seems much happier in the new tank, and I'm sure having the heater has quite a bit to do with that (it was ~73 in the old tank).

Here's what we ended up with:

Nice, I like what you ended up with! I don't care for the look of Bio Orbs at all, but that's just me.

I love my Eclipse Hex 5. The filter is SO quiet and relaxing, and it doesn't generate a strong current, so little betta can relax.

Thanks!

Yea, he's in there, just camera shy! If you look reallllllly carefully you can see a little bit of red from his tail hanging down just above the top of the heater.
