I saw that biorb tank, looks cool but people say its noisy and hard to clean. so you just put the syphon at the bottom of the tank and start pumping? and can you maybe send a link to a tank?? thanks

2.5gal really should be the minimum, but thats only IMO. others will beg to differ

And the first link only says its a 1/2 gallon and that there's no 2.5 gal?

And for the second link, the 2.5gal is $30. (Why not get the 5 gal for $30?) And the bigger, the easier to maintain. NOT vice versa, as many pet stores like to say

You don't need to do a 100% w/c on a 2.5 gallon every day...twice a week is fine.

so im guessing this is my best bet? http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2752385 and a flow rate of 35GPH is safe for bettas?

That would work fine~

I don't mean to be pushy or anything, but why not get the 5 gallon for $30? Instead of a 3 gallon for $40?

And I have no idea how 35GPH is, sorry. Is the filter adjustable? Or will you have to cram it with stuff?

I think I have heard complaints about the so-called built in filter and lighting, though. If it breaks, you have to replace the ENTIRE hood? I'm not sure, I've never used it before. But other than that, it'll work fine :)

35 gph is low, good for a betta.

Most of the hood filter kits are real good on replacment parts. Our eclipse 12 only needed a replacment impeler once for like $3.
