Talking Beginner needs help with accessories/habitat!

My *first* new fish, Pickle is currently living in a rather small tank, about a foot high and 1/2 a foot tall (Im planning to move him into the turtles tank as soon as it gets a new one)
I got him a few days ago, and his tank is bare.
Im wondering if I can put a few smooth stones in his tank in the meantime, but Ive heard these have to be boiled or something?
I am also wondering if I can put him into an, eh, plastic container, about a foot wide and 1/2 tall. It was actually a lettuce container once, but Its all cleaned out.
He seems really bored, and I want to help him Asap.
Im giving him attention and all, and Im using a heat lamp for warmth.
Could I have a little help,
and am I on the wrong forum to be asking this question?
Help is obviously appreciated

I got Pickle from a small little shop.
They had like 5 little betta's in itty-bitty little bowls.
They all kept flaring at each other,
and Pickle was in the back.
Poor thing had a bumpy-cold ride home :(

how much water would you say it takes to fill this tank?
i wouldn't put him in something that held vegetables- it might have bacteria or be too flimsy- if you want something bigger but still affordable you could get a big critter keeper- they're good for keeping bettas but you have to clean them out when the water gets dirty.

I agree with Jynx on the critter keeper. You can get a 2.5 gallon or a 5 gallon for a good price at any pet store or fish store.

Oh, yeah, I love Critter Keepers. I have 5 myself, and I definitely find it rather easy to clean them. Much less work than a five gallon, if I may say so myself xD I'm hoping that eventually, seven of my eight will be in critter keepers. The eighth, Sherbet, will be able to stay in his 5 gallon. But as I said before, what you have him in right now will be okay for awhile, as long as you keep up on water changes, and have plans on upgrading him eventually.
