Help on a tank

http://www.petco.com/product/109841/...arium-Kit.aspx

I'm gonna buy this for my betta and i was wondering if it's good. I am gonna replace the undergravel filter with another soon but is the tank decent?

Honestly, I'd just spend $5 extra and get a 5 gallon kit from Walmart especially since you're going to replace stuff on it. It'd be cheaper to get a good kit from the get-go. Your betta will thank you for it.
But if you're limited for space, it will do.

Cute little tank, BUT..... Not enough back & forth room for swimming, IMO.

Any way you can spend a tad more & get a 5 gal. tank? Wal-Mart has a nice little 5 gal. tank kit for a reasonable price ($29.77):

Yes, it's a very good filter. And if you lift the intake tube up enough, the flow is reallly slow. I don't even have to make a baffle for mine. My betta can swim right in front of it without any problem.

I got the Tetra Submersible Heater for 2-15 gallon tanks from Walmart along with my 5 gallon aquarium kit. =] I am very happy with both!
