Question Best tank?

Hey everyone! I'm still in search of a tank that I can buy for my betta, and I'm really struggling. I was wondering what kinds of tanks you guys use for your bettas.

Preferably, it'd like either a 3 or 5 gallon tank. I'll be taking this tank to and from college in the fall, so something durable would work best. A filter, light, and lid would be great too! And I know it's hard to come across, but a tank like this that wouldn't break the bank would be awesome.

So what kind of tank do you have? What would you recommend?

Thanks :)

The Aqueon Bowfront comes in 2.5 and 5 gal. It has a light and filter, but you would have to buy a 25 watt adjustable heater for it. It's made of plastic, so it's light.
A friend of mine that goes to college has a Topfin that he takes back and forth to college.

I like the bowfront. I have the 2.5, but the 5 looks great as well.

The five would be fine also. Your the only one that can judge that since you'll be the one toting it back and forth.

Fluval specs are nice for a small tank, but are more expensive.

I have both the spec and the bow front. I prefer the spec IMO its much better quality. The LED is better and the filter is better.

Walmart sells a 5 gallon aquarium that comes with a tetra filter and a low profile led hood for around 27 bucks. I don't know how transporting it to college would be though. I imagine you would have to take it apart and set it up like new again. 27 dollars isn't a bad price though.

I'm using the Tetra 5g tank from Walmart and it's really great. It's pretty cheap (mine was $29ish), has a gentle filter, and comes with an LED-light hood. The only additional thing you'd need to get (besides decor) is a heater. I've also used the Aqueon 2.5g in the past, but it ended up cracking after a few months and you might need to baffle the filter. It's also pricier than the 5g.
