Take a look at this one:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-5-...arium/14660258

It's acrylic, costs $25.00 & shipping is FREE!!! Comes with everything except the heater and the light is FLUORESCENT!!!!!!!!

I ordered one over the week-end & can't wait to get it! :)

Is the Hawkeye better than the Tetra?

He's doing good thanks for asking. I got him this floating Betta log from petsmart that he seems to be enjoying. http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...6162&lmdn=Fish though his little tank is a little cramped. He still has room to get to the top for air though so I figured it was okay.

The hawkeye looks really nice and is less expensive then the tetra, I'm just unsure about the filter. The hawkeye has a rapids that I think is this one http://www.petdiscounters.com/c70/c5...ter-p7031.html. Not sure if that's a good one but I guess I can always get another filter to replace it if i don't like it.

Another question I had was about substrates. I would like to put some live plants in his future home and make his home feel as close to his natural environment as possible. I saw this substrate called eco-complete and another called floramax from caribsea http://www.caribsea.com/pages/produc...ted_aquar.html that is supposed to help plants grow/feed them but I'm not sure if that would be good for a Betta. Maybe some river rocks or pebble would be better?

I'm glad Taco's doing well! =]

D,8 Bu-bu-but! WHY wasn't that in the store?!?!?! I wish I'd seen that! I would have snatched it up!!!! </3 I think I'll spend my birthday money on it and keep the one I have now for later or something. Like when I live on my own. That tank is AMAZING! <3 And so cheap and light and adjustable filter and AUGH! </3

I have AWFUL timing! >.< Is it even sold in stores or just online?

EDIT: Btw I PM'd you my opinions. =]

Again I say you're awesome for stepping up and taking care of him! =]

I had the hawk eye for Twilight and it was great! the only thing is is it's acrylic and scratches easily but if your careful it fine.the florescent light is great too

ps I didn't use the filter but i use if for a different tank and it's adjustablt flow and the lowest (sorta) is completley betta safe i have mine even higher than the lowest setting for betta's. i also got mine at Wally-mart
