i would also suggest starting with a freshwater community tank. once you get the hang of fish keeping you can always change it to saltwater. but you should get really good at freshwater before trying to do a saltwater setup. are you willing to try a freshwater first?

my reccomendation to you, would be to move your betta into the 10 gallon, and get him 4-6 otocinclus or corydoras. They are great little catfish, and otocinclus, will actually clean your tank up and remove algae (to a certain extent).
Your 2.5 gallon doesn't sound too apetizing, and IMO isn't really big enough for a betta to stimulate himself in.(no offense)
Have fun with your betta, and I hope you find what you're looking for.

it would be a good idea to give your betta a bit more room but there are other tankmates that you could put with him if you wanted something besides just algea eaters.
