The odd thing is, Walmart actually sells some pretty decent 5 and 10 gallon setups if you're on a strict budget--I think I got mine (10 gallon tank, hood, filter) for about $30 or $35 last summer. Why anyone would buy this silly little thing is beyond me.

It's the designer mentality.
I wish the manufacturers would just cut the crap about how "your betta will love his cozy little home." They're expensive because they're intended to be decorations, not homes. And it's supply and demand too ... They'll charge more for what people want to buy. And sadly, most people don't want to buy or aren't encouraged to buy a 10 gal tank and filter, heater, etc.
