Prime for water conditioner is all I'll ever use.

I also like Seachem's Flourish line if your going into plants.

Stay away from topfin heaters. I used to like them but I've found that after about 6 months they ALL crap out. I've had to buy two heaters in one week because both broke. One stopped heating effectively and the other had my tank at 90*F. I now use Marineland Stealth pro heaters if I need to buy locally. If I have time to order online I get hydor theos... awesome heater!

Foods.. live is best. My guys die over their white worms.. they love them to death.

For dry...
NLS Betta, Small fish, and Grow.. I feed a mix of these
Attinsons Betta and Betta pro
HBH Betta Bites
Kens Crumbles

(the last two I haven't actually tried but I really want to.. just too expensive for me right now).

Frozen.. I stick with hikari brand.

Filters.. Marineland is great and I also like Aqueon.

Plants... www.bobstropicalplants.com is where I got my plants from. Nice plants but not labeled was my only issue. Great snails too!

Eclipse tank kits are great. I'd love to have another eclipse 3 (or two).

Eco-complete is my favorite substrate (if your going planted).

I like these air pumps.. extremely quiet.

on an unrelated, note. I use test strips (im a bit lazy) but i use jungle brand. I find that its relativity accurate. and mess free, fast.

Just my opinion.

I second the Hydor Theo heaters. Best heater I've ever used. And they have the best reviews at Amazon

As for live food goes can I just get it at my local petco? I looked around when I went and got my pellets, water conditioner, and water testing supplies ( I couldn't find the liquid ones). I dont know if I'm not looking hard enough or what but a lot of things that were mentioned weren't at petco. I found Aqueon and Hikari but that was about it.

Do you remember what the shipping was like at bobstropicalplants ?
I have never seen that store before, but it looks pretty cool.

I don't remember but it wasn't too bad. Maybe like $10 or so.
