Looking for advice on the best kit on the market (the 5-gallon hawkeye at Walmart is sold out) for bettas, ideally from users with experience on said tanks. :) Currently looking at the 5-gallon mini-bows or the 5-gallon eclipses... Never having purchased a real aquarium before, (currently have a 2.5gal critter carrier with heater) I don't know which brands are most reliable. I'm also planning to grow some live plants, and would like to know which aquarium kit comes with the best light for such. Also working in a poor-college-student budget!
Not sure what the hawkeye aquarium at Walmart is, but they have a regular 5 gallon glass aquarium set-up for $30. It comes with the tank, hood, light, filter and filter cartridge. The only thing needed is the heater. This is the tank I currently have for Taco.
Dosen't really matter...to the betta it's all the same. I use the 5 gallon one from Walmart to breed my fish and raise fry till either week 3 or 4 then they go to the growout. The filter works great. Highly reccomended.
I am wanting the Aqua Culture 5 or 10 gallon tank from walmart. It comes with the tank, a hood with lights, a filter with extra media, water conditioner, and sample food for 29.99(5 gallon) and 36.99(10 gallon)
the 55 gallon is 126 bucks and comes with a digital thermometer. lol i just thought that was neat. i wouldnt get a 55 gallon tank... haha
