I never even thought of cleaning them that way
. Good idea! I'm looking to maybe get a 5 gal. one soon but I'd probably filter it....I'm still a little wary of uncycled tanks because I've always gone with cycled.
I'd go with the critter keeper too. It'd probably be larger, easier to see your fish without the curved sides, and like DQ said you could heat it if you wanted.
