I think you should buy this tank!!! It does have evrything exept for
*food(s)--------> anywhere for $2-5
*betta(or other fis?!?!?!)-->anywhere from $2-30 depending on type
Hope i helped and the only reason that a betta would be 30 dollars is if it was the elephant ear betta or a "pure" bred betta from thailand.
Ok, well apart from the betta (which I believe some rare ones actually go into the thousands!) and the betta specific items like heater, net, food, etc, how does this tank look for a beginner wanting to do a planted aquarium?
I've read some reviews and people have recommended switching out the filter for a smaller one, adding a second light, and buying a second bag of substrate. That is really going to be more money than I want to spend...
Personally I would just start my own planted tank!
Which is what I am doing. Then you can buy everything you need on your own budget! I'll only need to spend around 40$ to get everything for a planted tank, and that includes the tank I am going to be getting.
Maybe price everything out separately and see if it's less, or more expensive than buying that tank.
I do like it, but I just don't want to spend over $100 on it if I will need to change a bunch of stuff just to get it to grow plants. If I can buy a tank, heater, filter, light, substrate, etc for less then I would rather do that.
I guess I'm off to search for glass cube aquariums!
I've seen a few people on other forums who have had a lot of success keeping bettas in planted Fluval Floras/Ebis (same tank, different contents in package). Plus, it comes with a pretty nifty natural-looking rock wall backdrop and a good lid to prevent bettacide. Unless you're growing some demanding high-light species of plants, you should be fine with the stock lighting.
