Best and worst nano tanks?

My new betta Castiel is currently residing in a one gallon bowl. While not the worst environment, it is nowhere near ideal, and I'm looking to get him an upgrade ASAP, especially as he seems super bored with only one plant to explore. However I just CAN'T decide on a tank!

So I'm looking for tanks 10 gal and under. Starter kits preferably, as I have NO CLUE what I'm doing, and the easier everything is, the better. Also, nothing under 2 gals, as that wouldn't really be much of an upgrade from my 1 gal bowl.

Also, I think I like glass over acrylic, but am open to both.

I have two Eheim Aquastyle glass tanks, both 4G. Great lighting and filter. Really like them so far...

I have two of these: http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...uctId=11459461 ...IME, great tank I did replace the lighting for a plant light, and I bought a new cheap internal filter because the one it comes with was a bit too strong for my betta and the baffle I made was unsightly

One note on a specific tank line, the Aqueon mini bows are great for bettas and everything but live plants are very limited, I have really grown annoyed of the light and filter placement.

Fluvals tanks are pretty good, again not all that great for plants. I usually like to just buy a tank and buy the bet stuff or stuff that I wanna try out through Amazon. My heater in my sorority would have coat me around $45, got for like $29.

You would probably be best off though with an Aqueon kit, if you want live plants get the deluxe as the light is T8 instead of two CFLs that the normal kit comes with.

I have this one right now for my Sapphire, which was Sammy's previous tank, I upgraded Sammy's to a 5 gallon, but this one worked great for both fishy's:)

Lelei can you please use the edit button or use the multiple quotes? It kind of spams the thread...

Do you have a specific budget? If not their are some super nice tanks that you can get. Also are you doing live plants?
