Look what I got for $5!!!

So was out garage saling at a city wide garage sale on Friday. Most sales started Wed and were having 50% off all their stuff. this keeper was originally $10 but I got it for $5 with all the decor and rocks! I originally thought it was a 3 gallon, but upon comparing it to my 5g I am thinking it is 5g! I haven't decided who will be getting this tank yet. It is between Aki, Arashi and Kinzoku. Not sure if I will be using the decor it came with or starting over. I will keep everything just not sure it will stay in this tank. Anyways I think I got a pretty good deal and cannot wait to stock it. But I promised my mom I wouldn't do it until we moved.
I would like to make this a NPT (trying to make most of my tanks this way) but I am not sure how to give it good light any suggestions?

LOL
i love garage sale-ing for that exact reason, i got my 10 gallon with a hood ,light , filter , and gravel, all for 15 $
you may look on Ebay for a hood of the measurements on your critter keeper... i have kritter keeper like it, except mines 2.5 gallons, and I've always wanted a hood for it.... with a nice light, you might check and see if your 5 gallon hood fits on it, if so,look for another on Amazon or Ebay or Craigslist.... or a flea market lol.

I have found some good deals on tanks before, but I have been looking for a 5g so I am super excited to have found one. And my 5g is longer that this, this one is taller and about an inch shorter length wise. I may see if I can find a 10g hood and use that if I can't find anything else. I wonder if putting it in front of a window would help?

nice! I went to a church sale and got a large cave for 75 cents. Its super nice. The place I got this had a few other tanks a couple 1gs and a 10g. The girl who owned them was also a betta person. The 10g had a heater and I was so tempted to offer like a buck or two just for the heater, and few more dollars for all the ornaments in the tanks lol but I controlled myself knowing I had themes in mind for my next tanks lol

If you can measure it, you can input the measurements at www.aqadvisor.com and it will tell you its volume in gallons.
