I love my Hawkeye 5g! It really does look bigger than 5g, like Lion Mom said. When I think about dividing the 10g tank we have at home (to save two more bettas) I keep thinking the compartments look so small compared to the Hawkeye, even though they're the same!
I've heard that bettas prefer to swim horizontally, as their native homes (rice paddies) are shallow.
I have my Hawkeye on my desk, and it takes up no more room than my laptop. Can't beat the price, either! And it will ship free site to store!
EDIT: Just wanted to add that the filter is absolutely silent on the Hawkeye.
