Plastic tubs are cheaper in general, the point you're stating is just purely based on aesthetics, yeah plastic tubs may not be as "pretty" as a glass tank, but plastic tubs most often provide better homes than certain tanks, due to Bettas having more swimming room and shallow water, it almost mimics their natural habitat, shallow but wide.

Not sure what a "full size" tank is. Glass doesn't hold heat well and if you drop it you're screwed. Plastic tubs can be just as clear as a glass tank (or else I would not be able to moniter my fry). They may not be as decorative but they do the job even better than glass does.

Here's a great example of a plastic tub home for Bettas.

I like tanks but I have a community tank. I see the point of plastic tupperware but personally I'd only use it as temp homes for fish in quarentine or if I bred them. I like my fish not just for companionship but something to watch so I like pretty lighting and decor. The pic Micho put up would be great though! Especially with the swimming space. How much is the water capacity on that btw? They sell those in my 1 shop.

They hold 3.5 gallons of water apparently the owner of the tanks stated himself. :) He has bigger ones that hold 4.5 gallons. I really like the idea of these tanks because how much swimming room they give, much better than the regular tanks you can find out in the market that hold the same amount of water. Also heating is a non-issue for these tubs, they won't melt I believe, so just stick a heater in there, and for a 3.5 a filter is not needed but if you really wanted one, I guess those mini-internal filters could work.
