Need help finding a good 2-3 gallon

It's been a little over a month since I've got my betta, and I'm finally going to upgrade him out of that 1 gallon bowl. Unfortunately, due to space and money restraints, I can only spend about 35 dollars for a 2-4 gallon tank.

Can someone recommend me to any on Amazon.com?

if you have any pet store nearby you can get kritter keepers. they come .5g up to 5 g tanks. they're just plastic tanks that do just as well as very basic aquariums. they're well within your price range. i havent seen any with a filter installed but i do think there might be some filter models that allow it. they can also hold heaters very well.

Ah, this is actually a gift from a friend who's very far away from me, so she would have to order it online and mail it to my house.

Is this a good deal? And obviously, is this tank any good?

That tank should be ok... i have a 2.5 gal tank for my male veiltail betta right now. But because bettas use oxygen you have to be careful with lids; to make sure they can get enough air.

that is a good tank, i have one myself, i dont use the filter by personal choice and i have no objections to the tank. just so you're aware of the prices, sometimes you can get larger KK for the price of normal aquariums ie minibow vs KK. its more of a presonal preference choice as both work well. i dont mind KK as i dont plan on having any sub5g filtered. it comes down to appeance ie plastic box vs proper looking aquarium.

that aquarius 5g is a good deal for that price.

I would say go with the one that @solaris posted because it's bigger and i read about the reviews for that one on petsmart and it seems perfect

Hmm... I just noticed on Petco that the Aqueon Mini Bow 5 gallons are only 30 dollars right now with free shipping. My only worry is that 5 gallons might be a little big to fit on my desk with everything else...

With the shipping, the 2.5 gallon is going to come up to around 28 dollars while the 5 gallon is coming up to 30 dollars with free shipping. Would all bettas appreciate a 5 gallon over something that is smaller like a 2.5 gallon?

I just don't want the size change to be too drastic (from 1 gal bowl) or have him not like the 5 gallon, since I've read some places that their betta's preferred 2-3 gal over 5 gal.
