Marina Betta Tank

I will be getting a betta soon, and was wondering about a small inexpensive tank. How is the Marina Betta tank? How is the Aqueon 2.5 gallon betta bow?

Walmart has a 5 gallon kit for $26. If you are not getting live plants I would pay an extra $3 and get the LED kit.

What space do you have to put the tank in, and what price do you want to stay under?

Thanks! Are there any other smaller or cheaper tanks you would recommend?

Is a one gallon fishbowl okay for a starter home?

This 5-gallon is on sale at Amazon for $25. It has the filter, hood, and lights; you'd just need a heater. http://www.amazon.com/Aquarius-Aq150...s=aquarium+kit

I am just a kid, so I only feel comfortable spending under 20 dollars, but I will go up to 30 dollars if it is a really good tank with a heater and filter.

You can get a heater that would heat that one on sale for just seven dollars more, with free shipping. The whole order should come to $32, it would give your fish 5 whole gallons to play in. http://www.amazon.com/Vktech-Explosi...quarium+heater

If you decide to go with a fishbowl, you will need a heater anyway, though. I used a fishbowl as a temporary (one-week) home, and my fish did fine in it. As soon as I put him in a larger tank, though, he started making bubble nests and was very happy.

Is a 2.5 gallon tank okay. There were lots of good reviews on it, and I could purchase it for my birthday.

I think many people here have their bettas in a 2.5-gallon. I know many folks think they need to be in at least a 5-gallon, but I am too new to the hobby to know how bettas react. I would think that as long as you have a heater for your 2.5 you would be okay. I hope you enjoy your fish! Happy early birthday!
