I picked up all the half gallons they had at the time so I will probably go back soon to see if they restocked. It also comes with a lid.

The company that makes them is Mainstays, it is called a canister.
I use the 1/2 gallon jars from Walmart for my jars. One time when I went to get some, they only had one out so I asked one of the employees if they had any more in the back, and they did! I've got all I need ATM.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I found a couple of plastic gallon jugs at walmart today for my two new males coming in on friday. Which I am VERY excited about! I set up the two gallon jugs as Qt tanks I really like them, they were $3 each and they came with screw on lids which I poked holes in.

I get the 1/2 gallon and 1 gallon ones Sincerely was mentioning.

Yeah the barracks will need cleaning but only twice a week or so vs everyday for a ton of jars.

hmm. Maybe I should look into that. Is it true that you can get plexiglass cut at home depot to insert into the tanks as dividers?

I'm making a four tanks out of plexi. Each side will have 10 bettas making for 20 per tank. PVC pipe delivers clean water and holes in the back of each section drain dirty water into a channel. The channel dumps into more PVC and into a sump filter.
