I'm buying a betta from aquabid, and I'm trying to get the very best possible setup for this guy on a $110 budget.
So, I was thinking of this 10 gallon tank: http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...453&lmdn=Shape
And this heater because it has good reviews, its not expensive, comes with actual temperature markings instead of a "+" and "-" sign which really drive me nuts, and it looks good: http://www.amazon.com/Hydor-THEO-Sub...7564427&sr=8-2
This filter, because its a sponge filter. I've lost two betta fish to filters, so I only use sponge filters anymore: http://www.amazon.com/Aquarium-Bioch...7562972&sr=1-4
An air pump, for operating the sponge filter:
Already have airline tubing.
Also, I've never used sand substrate and I want to because it looks nice. Can someone tell me about it? (Estimating at $15.99 in final price for 10lbs)
I also have Omega One Betta Flakes, freeze-dried bloodworms, and BettaMin pellets.
