Wlecome to the forum! If you suspect he does have parasites and you do see him passing something, white and stringy poop is what you should be looking out for.

Like other people said, you can buy a 2-4 gallon kritter keeper (link) at most chain petstores for about $10 or so. They can accommodate a small 25 watt heater as well. Some people have had success using the cheap preset tetra heaters that are only $15 or so in these containers. Although it is agreed that adjustable heaters are better. Also make sure to check out your craigslist! Many people give away used tanks (sometimes with all accessories included) at really good prices! I just saw and ad on my craigslist where someone is selling their 10 gal with decorations, heater, plants, filter, gravel, and light hood all for $50! I was sorely tempted to get it.

Aww, I love your little plant you have for him! I've never seen a cute one like that :)

2.5 gallons are really cheap! Even at my very over priced pet store a glass 2.5 gallon was $11 dollars :) I think Petco sells them for A LOT cheaper than that! I heard they had dollar-per-gallon sale, but don't take my word on that! ;)

If you took out some of those rocks and just leave enough to cover the bottom, he'll have more room for now until you can get a bigger tank ^^
