Hey welcome to fishforum.com

I personaly would recommend a 10 gallon kit. It is easy to set up and comes with the main things you need. ( you may need a heater ) Like I said easy to set up and if you wanted any other fish later on you could do that. And you have a little room to put decorations and gravel etc...

if you are talking about a betta fish, then i purchased a one-gallon setup when i bought my fish, for 10 bucks. it came with a cute little plastic tank and a hood and and air pump. it has been more than enough room for my one betta fish. i've had him in that tank for over a year. i'm no expert, but seems to me that this would be sufficient for your present needs. =)

well they have some 10 gal that come whith lots of stuff for only 30 buckers. you dont realy need a heater BUT you do need a filter . betta r pretty easy fish . or you can get a betta in a vase for a round 10-20 bucks. but you cant put a filter in that one.

To clear this, betta splendens will easily thrive even in a 5 gallons tank although they like it better if the tank has more space. 10 gallons is already suitable for them.

Katherine, if you are thinking of adding more fish, you may try 6 neon tetras but this is not the right time for you to get any fish until you cycled your tank via fishless cycle.

It's best that you add the neons only after the tank reaches 6 months of maturity. Better to be safe than sorry.
