betta tank question

Ok so stupid question but as I don't have a tank yet and its hard to see details online I was wondering if any of the 2 1/2g tanks would help with the humidity in the winter. Looks like the top has to be closed so the betta cannot jump out but are the holes in the top that would allow the tank to help create humidity or can you leave the top slightly open? Also read that I must avoid built in top filter so can anyone tell me if the Hagen Fluval Chi aquarium is ok? Thanks for help brit

The top shouldn't be totally covered. There should be some sort of ventilation because bettas need the air.

All of my tanks are completely covered - air permeates the tops.

I have the built in top filters - they are terrific. Nice gentle current they make and they are silent. I think those all in ones like the marineland eclipse tanks are the best thing out there for a betta tank. All you need is a heater.

A tank that small is not going to make any difference with humidity.
