Arrow Looking to Upgrade: Suggestions?

My betta is currently in a 1.5 gallon tank (I do a lot of water changes to keep the water clean and clear). He recently start nipping at his tail out of boredom so I'm looking to get him a new tank hoping the extra room will cure his boredom. I'm looking for a desktop tank thats around 4-5 gallons. I have looked at Petco and Petsmart and haven't seen the perfect tank yet. Any suggestions? :) And I'd love to see pictures of your own tanks~

Im not sure what kind of heater you have in your tank, but for a 2.5 gal tank you need a 25 watt heater but no more than 50 watts... adjustable with a thermostat.. heres a good one if you need a new heater ;)

Petsmart had the 5.5g Top Fin starter kit. Marineland also has a 4g tank, which can also be found at Petsmart; it is more expensive than the Top Fin though.
