This is what my betta is currently in. I like it ok, but I just have a heater, no filter on it. Im cycling a 5g to upgrade him, but if I didnt have the room id be fine keeping him in the 2.5g.
I use cheap plastic cling wrap over the top rather than the glass cover. Im not sure how your filter would hook onto the tank, I know the one I have now wouldnt fit on it. I would have definite problems for with the second little ledge that the glass cover sits on.
Do check the seams though. When I was buying mine I noticed that some were a little sloppy. You can see the "glue" (i have no idea what they use exactly to hold it together) up by the top corners and some had big chunks.
