I hope you can. Good luck! :) Just convince them that you'll take good care of your betta. It sounds like you ARE taking good care of him already. And you have your new friends at FishForum to help you along the way. :) I think you can get everything separately for less than the kits cost, I THINK.

Well how i see the whole tank size thing is this:

Your fish lives in this tank. Is NEVER going to go out of it. Its kinda like an apartment. You can live in an apartment for ever, never leaving it *granted someone brings you food*, and only cleaning it once a month when the air is so thick you can't breathe, but are you going to be happy in it?

I have a 2 gallon *i spent $16 on it, got everything i needed other than food and water conditioner* and its not even 1' by 1' * i know this b/c the table i have it on is 1' by 1'*

try craigslist for a cheap tank or have them spend some time on here. show them some posts/threads and explain to them about the need for the fish to not just live, after all a person in a coma is alive and a person can be tortured yet still alive, but he needs to flourish. good luck! i am fortunate that my parents support me in anything i decide to do that won't get me in trouble... or include higher schooling

Ducki- Try craigslist! and you can get everything cheaper by individually then in a kit, unless like me you luck out for finding a really good sale. Or just buy what you can afford and then buy the filter and such later. its not going to die if it goes a little while without the filter.

Good luck! let me know if anything else is needed.

You're welcome. As far as keeping the water warmer, you could put the bowl near a lamp. That might help some.
