Is this tank ok?

I was wondering if this tank is ok? If I got this, I couldn't add a shrimp. Could I get a heater and filter small enough to fit it?

Yes, that tank would make a great home for your betta! I think you add A shrimp, but i'm not sure about that. Just make sure you get heater a filter should come with it. If not make you get one.

Yay! I really like this one.

Edit: is an under gravel filter okay? It comes with under gravel filter and air pump. So I just need the heater?

Undergravel filters aren't that good in my opinion. =/ It'd get a Tetra Whisper Filter (they make them for 3 gallons) or something else if you can. =]

Why don't you go for the Hawkeye 5 gallon hex? It cost about 5 dollars less and they'll ship it to your house for only a dollar. It's bigger (you could put more shrimp in and a snail) and it comes with a MUCH better filter! =] I have the same filter that comes with that system and it works wonderfully! =]

Also there are many experienced users on here with the Hawkeye 5 gallon hex and they've all given wonderful reviews! =]

The 3g is taller, so it takes up ALOT less space if thats an issue.

I like the 5 G hex, but I am keeping him on my nightstand for now. My husband rotates and does night shifts every 2 weeks. I know it seems silly, but the light from an aquarium and the "company" of the fish would actually make me feel better. Mostly the light and I find it relaxing watching fish swim. I can't handle a dog or cat right now. The 5 G Hex would fit. Just. Nothing would hang over. I'd still have a little room and if it's against the wall, it'd probably stand a better chance should my 2 year old sneak in. Something to think about.

Edit: Just read the reviews on the 3. The colors are part of what I love and apparently they are not that good. The thing has horrible reviews. :(
