I've had my male betta for about a year now, his name is Fishy (oh so creative, I know) and he's a spunky little guy. He likes to jump for his food and watch TV (and people too!). I've been thinking about getting him a new tank for a little while now because the one I have has no lighting and the shape doesn't lend itself to adding lighting very well. He's currently in this: http://www.amazon.com/Hagen-Marina-A...lien+fish+tank
It's a 2.65 gallon tank, with a filter, and I bought one of those flat little betta heaters for the bottom under the pebbles.
I was thinking about getting a larger tank since I want to get a new one for lighting purposes so I can get real plants and they won't die on me.
I figured since I'll be getting a larger tank, I may as well try and get Fishy a friend as well.
I'm looking for suggestions for a tank mate and a tank
for Fishy. I'm trying to keep the tank cost under $50... really as cheap as possible for decent quality (I'm a college student working 2 jobs, so... the cheaper the better, but I certainly want the best I can afford for my fish.).
I'd also prefer to buy both the tank and tank mate at a local store. I live between Ardmore, PA and West Philadelphia... if that helps with stores at all.
