Question tupperware containers

I found one gallon tupperware containers at walmart the other day and was wondering if i could put a betta in it with some gravel and plants. I don't want to use a fishbowl because i hear they can jump out. i would love to get a get a real tank for my bettas, but i'm 12 years old and cant afford it. (petco is way overpriced!) i figure it's better than the 1/2 gallon kritter keeper he's in. what do you think? would it be a good home for my fish?

That woould be a good solution but I would keep looking, I'm sure you could find something a little big bigger.
Check out the storage section in the store, where they have al the closet storage bins and stuff. You'll probably find something very innexpensive there that's bigger.

Hey, im 11 and im usually broke most of the time and if you go to your local dollar store you can almost always find a good 3-10 gallon fish tank for cheap and all you have to do is a fast rinse and voila!

I was at target the other day, and they had them 6qt which is like 1.5 gallon with lid's. They were clear plastic sterlite container's, I bought 15 of them because they were 5 dollars for 5 of them with lid's. I was like wow 5 for 5 and my betta are in 1.5 for a dollar each.. I just drilled a couple hole's in the lid for air..

I would get a larger tub. For just a couple dollars more you can get a sterilite tub that is 5 gallons. That would be much easier to heat than a tiny 1.5 gallon tank.

I was just letting him no that he could get a 1.5 with a lid for 1 dollar so him being broke and 11, can at least have a 1.5. Sure a 5 gallon would be awesome, but for 10 dollars you can get a real aquarium a bare 10 gallon so of course bigger is better for a couple dollars more. And I am housing over 25 - 75 bettas so it's easier to have a bunch of 1.5 that I don't have to use heaters and all that..

If there's a re-sale shop nearby, that would also be a good place to check.
Perhaps a garage sale, too.
