Home made "tank"?

I recently had to separate out my one male from the divided tank. So I took the divider out and pearl is a happy clam. But jaws tank is far too small and i can't buy him a new one. I was wondering if there is a type of container like Tupperware that would work and be bigger?
He doesn't have much but he def has a heater but I'm stuck on what to put him in

If you were to visit my fish room you'd see a lot of plastic tubs.

Tubs are great for keeping bettas. They're not as clear as glass but they do the job just as well and are even better for keeping the temperature constant.

A lot of people use tupperwares and containers as tanks! Another solution is Kritter Keepers, they're cheap and inexpensive and can make a great home for a Betta.

For "tupperwares", people use the Sterlite brand, they make great homes. :) Kritter Keepers aren't a bad option either, consider them too.

I use tub tupperware containers and plastic tubs as houses for bettas too in my fish room aswell, I use these mainly because of the availability, price, sturdiness, easy to heat, usually longer, and the ability to "stack" ontop of eachother. They might not be as clear as regular tanks, but they are still very efficient,

What do you mean by showing them off? The clearness of the containers? I usually get mainly clear plastic tubs and not ones that give an adverse apperance of the fish some can still appreciate its beauty

Full size tanks? I don't understand you statement clearly at all, what would your definition of full size be? There's nothing wrong with using a plastic tub. It's my experience, and many other people have found this out aswell, having a plastic tub as a permanent home is completely fine

I am still wondering what you mean by full size tanks? I'm sorry if I'm coming off a bit rude and offensive but I don't understand what you mean in your post very clearly, sorry.
