What tanks do you have and what do you recommended?

I'm looking into getting another betta soon, if I can afford it.
I might have to opportunity to get a ten gallon that would just need plants, filter and a heater, but I'd like to keep looking.
What tanks do you have for your bettas and which ones are best on a budget?

I was thinking either 2.5, 3, 5, or MAYBE a 10. I'm not sure. I'd only have one fish mandatory and two'd be nice, but i could always get a small tank and save then ten for later when i actually have space. I just need a good, small, betta friendly, affordable tank. (as in less than 50 dollars for tank(w/filter), heater, deco/plants, and fish)

For under $50? That can be a little tight. I know currently Petco has a 14gallon kit for sale for $40. I'm not sure if it has a heater or not. I was so tempted to buy it today. XD Your best bet is going to be to buy a kit from Walmart or the internet.
As for what I have.
I have 2 10gallons I pieced together with what I had laying around.
I then have a 5 gallon Minibow I bought on clearance for $29.
Then I have Petco's "Bookshelf Aquarium" that is 6.6 gallon I think it was around $50.
Not including heaters, gravel, or decorations. I bought things kind of as I went.

I have a Marineland 3 gallon Arc. Comes with a lamp with 16 LEDs and a filter (which I found too strong for the tank). Cost me $40 in Canada at PetsMart.

I think I got my 10 gallon with a hood and filter for $19.99 from Petsmart. I might be crazy, but I'm pretty sure that's what I paid. At the very least, it's worth a call. It didn't come with a heater, substrate, or light bulbs, but otherwise it was a pretty complete set.

yeah i found one for $15 at petsmart once and almost cried because it was a one-time-only deal and I had JUST gotten my ten gallon.
But I have gravel already, which helps.

well i got my hex(as mentioned above) at Canadian pestmart. for 11$ no joke. they were trying to clear them out. I don't know why they were brand new and everything. but when i got it all set up and adjusting to room temperature, i went online. Online at petsmart.com the exact tank was 50$ now its on sale for 40$

Try craigslist its where I live for my tanks. I got a 40 gallon once for free but many people sell 20 and 15 set ups for 10-15$ I just always ask to be able to fill the tank with water before I pay to be sure it doesnt leak but if it does I bargain the price down then spend like 3$ on sealant.
