Upgrading size without buying a new aquarium kit?

I would like to move my betta up from his 3g set up to a 5 - 10g set-up, however, I'm reluctant to buy a new aquarium kit: my filter and light are but 7 months old and in great condition. However, if I buy a plain 10g tank, I can't clip my light on (due to the plastic trim around the top of every tank). Any suggestions?

You can get a plain tank on kijiji or whatever you're online buy-sell equivalent is, or at most petstores. The lighting solution can be solved by getting a lamp or a hood made for that tank.

I have two simple 5 gallon tanks that have no hoods or lights. I already had the lighting (a strip kitchen light that I hung on my stand) and for a cover, you can use acrylic mesh or buy plastic and cut it to fit the top of your tank.
