Is the Aqua Culture 5 Acrylic? :) And relative price range? (not spotting it on the site) I much prefer acrylic to glass, easier for my skinny arms to carry it around and clean it.

Once you cycle the 5 gallon you don't have to carry it to clean it. Use a siphon. I'm a college student too. I just finished cycling my 5 gallon tank and I have to take it home in the first week of December, and in the first week of January bring it back. I think it IS acryllic. I have that one. On the website they don't have the Aqua Culture, they have a 5 gallon "Hawkeye." The Aqua Culture is $35ish.

I'm shopping for yet another tank already. -_- I'm going to rename Cream to Gypsy cause this is going to be his 4th time moving if you count the move from his cup.

Anyhow I found this today in my searching http://www.petsupplies.com/item/aqua...:referralID=NA since he's in about a 5 gallon kritter keeper I might as well just get a 5 gallon tank and call it a day

Yeah, i saw that tank as well. It just seems kind of tall for a betta, and not so much ground room for plants (I could grow them tall, i suppose...)

Yea I know I wish the hawkeyes hexes weren't gone off the walmart site and the price of the tetra starter kit went up $20 :( to think there's no searches that yields anything less than $40 now :(

Mm, guess I should--I really want the whole kit, though, since I'm such a newbie. And yeah, doesn't seem to be anything under $40 anymore... That other tank, though it comes to be about $34 with shipping, is too tall for my desk-hutch thing, which defeats the point, since I want it to fit in there, lol. Any recommendations on any of the 'nicer' acrylic 5-gallon kits?

I got the 5 gallon Tetra crescent today for Sam. It is plastic and has the seamless look and a nice lamp. Got a mega heater b/c they didn't have smaller but it is completely adjustable so should be good

Is it easy to use the hood, and whatnot? Any issues? :)
