Question Deciding on a new tank... help?

Hi, so I'm heading back off to college in a week and have been looking into a new tank for my fish (I just got a second betta, Button) that i could divide for the two of them. I can't fit more than a 5 gallon tank in my car so I'm deciding between these two:
http://www.petco.com/product/12788/M...arium-Kit.aspx
http://www.petco.com/product/10313/A...arium-Kit.aspx
I'm sort of leaning towards the Mini-Bow because the Hex seems like it might be too tall for my little guys (Fishstick hates deeper water and beaches himself when he sleeps). Any ideas? Another option I've been considering is getting a simple 5 gallon tank and buying the filter and everything separately.

Thanks!

I use the Marineland Eclipse corner 5 and I LOVE it. The filter is quiet and I love having the bio-wheel. I've got two of them actually.

I know a lot of people who have the mini-bow on here and are happy with it. I think there all great tanks. I would get the mini-bow!

Thanks, I'm going to get the Eclipse Corner 5 that dr2b suggested... I found it for $40 (cheaper than the other two) and the length is better if I'm dividing it...

Well if you have a walmart near buy they sell a 5 gallon glass rectangle tank from aqua culture. I comes with a filter/hood/lights. It just picked one up for my 2 boys and they love it, and it was only $28!!
