i also forgot to say, for people it's never a good idea to keep using a plastic container intended for one use for more than a few weeks before replacing it- even the safer plastics eventually break down and start leaching into the water, faster if they're kept in sunlight... so i would think you should probably use the same rule for fish. i might be a little paranoid about plastics because i'm an industrial design student so i'm always hearing cautionary tales about the horrible things that can go wrong when you put the wrong materials in the wrong situations, lol.

The Fluval Spec makes a nice Betta tank. We have several ranging from 2.5 to 5 gallons and we love them. Fantastic tanks for the money.

that would probably be fine, but so would a plain old food-grade plastic bucket (also HDPE/2) and it would probably be cheaper. :p

Maybe after reading the posts below, I may think about having BPA free bottles.

I have been leaving my water out for a few days before putting it in the tank. Do I have to do this if I use purifying drops? It would make it easier, because I could add hot and cold water out of the sink to match the tank temperature without having to heat it up (at school I don't have a stove close).
