Betta Homes

Hi Everyone, I just got my betta fish Angel & hes in a shamefully small glass "Bamboo Betta Bowl" ,i want to get a bigger home for him ,but i dont want plastic & I dont want a typical fish tank ..so if any one has any creative ideas or links to unusual betta or fish tanks please let me know, Thanks !

you don't really have many options. I would just get a standard glass tank and decorate it unusually if you want it to be creative. Your priority should be the welfare of the fish.. so you need to get him into something bigger asap.. even if that means a plastic storage bin.

Some are a bit pricey, but they are all really cool betta homes!
there are biorb bowls that range from 4 to 16g and have filtration. They are great for bettas and def unique! biOrb Aquarium Kits with Lights - Sale - Fish - PetSmart
or there is something like this
biOrb Life 30 Designer Aquarium - 8 gallons - Small Aquariums - Aquariums - PetSmart
or there are the 5 and 10g hex kits
Top FinŽ Aquascene 5 Aquarium Kit - Sale - Fish - PetSmart
then there are large vases and jars like this
2 Gallon Storage Jar by Anchor Hckg/roberts - More Vases, bottles, and decorative glassware at doitbest.com
you can always add something like this to a larger fish bowl
2 Quantity of 2 Gallon Fishbowl Undergravel Filter
this is AWESOME and 5 gallons, a perfect size!

Idk if you like any of those ideas but you have alot of options............

I wouldn't go for the BioOrb or any other spherical tank... spherical tanks are known to cause eye problems in fish due to the way light reflects in the bowl.

Appearnatly some places don't seel biOrbs for that reason, though I don't really have anything to say about blindness since my tanks aren't round. Biorbs are too expensive for me, but I think they look really nice. :)

Sorry to jack your thread, but I've got a 3 gallon aquaview 360, not completelly spherical, but it is cylindrical. Would that reflect funny? (I plan on moving him to a standard 5gal after i have the time and money to buy and cycle one, but wouldn't want to do alot of damage if I can avoid it)
