Which tank? Help me pick out of these for my Betta

Hey, so I really need a new tank and I've chosen a few online, help me pick which is the best choice, I am on a pretty tight budget atm.

I am from Australia so I can't get tanks shipped from those US stores like walmart and such.

Thanks.

I would go with the second or fourth one. If you do choose to use the filter, I recommend a sponge baffle, then you get the clean tank without bothering your fish.

Ok, I just won an auction on ebay for this tank instead:
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....m=130448815377

It comes with a 'Masterpet Air Pump' and a under gravel filter, should use these for my betta and buy a 25w heater?

28L is a nicely sized tank for your betta! The tank itself looks nice too. Congrats.

Not sure how well a 25w heater would work, since they're made for up to 5 gallons...but I'm assuming that where you live is very warm, so you wouldn't need a lot of heat. So a 25 watt heater SHOULD be okay...buy a thermometer as well to keep track of the temperature. 78-80 F (or around 26 C) is the ideal for a betta.

People have different views on undergravel filters. I personally have no experience with them, so I can't give you any advice. Sorry.
