Question could a clear storage bin be a betta tank?

i was in target today and saw some 20 gal. clear storage bins and i was wondering could you use one as a home for a betta?

I dont see why not! I have a female betta in a 5 gallon clear plastic tub till my 20g is done cycling. Its really easy to clean and I like that its light.

Yeah I know a lot of people who do this... espescially for breeders it is very cheap to just buy a bunch of rubbermaid tubs, a pack of plastic plants and some heaters and set their bettas up in bins... just don't forget to make a lid!

I used a 20 gallon clear tote to house a feeder goldfish. I used a power filter on either end and then filled the tote with live plants. It was awesome! It was like having a mini pond in my livingroom. My goldfish seemed to really enjoy it as well. :)

Yeppers!!! When I get a new rescue betta, and don't have a tank, I just put them in a bin. Works much much better in the summer when I don't need a heater though. I don't have enough heaters for all my bins. :( I also use a bin for my spawning tank.

I was going to use one to breed my betas, but a friend is giving me a 30gallon tank, so I'm going to move all of my other fish into it and use the ten gallon they are all in now.

I still might get a few to put male fry in once they get big enough, definitely worth the prices.
