Bettas are cool.

This seems like a pretty sweet tank for a betta. It comes with lighting and a filter. I think it would be perfect for a betta. You would have to buy a heater, though.

What is a covered coconut cave? I mean, I know what it sounds like, but ...

Its a half of a coconut with a hole cut out. Some people like to cover them with plants. Here is one:

Coconut cave looks very cool! I will try to make one...

Where would I get java moss? at a LFS? How much would it cost?

Lol, Ariel, that is for a hood. Not a whole tank. :)

And, IMO, that hood is terrible too. My dad has one on his 29G, and it does a terrible job. I mean, we constantly have to restart it if the power goes out, etc, and water flows OVER the cartridges instead of THROUGH them. Also has a very low flow (good for bettas, but bad for some). I dont know why someone would spend that $80+ for one of those.

However, an Eclipse System 12 Tank may be good. You should change out the light for a 6700k flourescent bulb you can get at like Home Depot though (the spiral ones). I dont know how big of bulbs that can take, but look for like, 20W+. I have a 14W light over my 2.5G, and no plats yet, but it looks pretty bright.

And, I agree with Coconut Caves. I have two in my 30G, with Java Fern on top, and they look great. They have a ton of tannins, though, so if you dont want that, then boil them for a long time. Driftwood, rocks, and a ton of live plants to simulate an Asian biotope would be cool.
