Sorry you can't get it.

I have ordered from that site before without any problems. And at that price, I ordered that tank - just couldn't resist!!!

This particular tank is taller than wide - not sure of the dimensions though, but it MIGHT not be any wider than a 3 gal.

Ok - just looked. It is 15 inches wide, 9 1/2 deep & 17 1/2 inches tall. Don't know if that will work for ya, but there ya got it! :)

One thing if you DO happen to get this tank. Don't use the decorations!!! The plastic plants are to rough for a betta's fins & some of the holes in the rock cave are just the right size for a betta to get stuck in. :(

I bought the Aqueon 2.5 gallon Betta tank from Petco for Mandala and it works really well. The filter is a little strong so you might have to baffle it, but it is dead silent, I never hear that tank. I got it on sale for $25 it sells originally for about $40.
I do not know about other 2.5 gallons, my other two 2.5 gallon tanks I got at yard sales. :)

I'm pretty sure walmart has the 5 gal rectangle tank with hood/lights/filter for under $40, mine was $28 but I think it's like $33 currently. It's a great tank, but is a 5 which you said is too big... but it's not super long, I don't know, just an option.

Walmart has a similar tank to the one you posted from Petco for 19.99 in the stores. I think it is Tetra brand. It has the LED lights on it. I had actually bought it but decided to go with the 5 gallon so I returned it. I have seen people on here use it. Good luck!

Another Possible Option?

Hey there. I just started with the Betta keeping hobby and like you, I'm a college student on a tight budget. If you have a petsmart near you, or if your parents will trust you to order from a reputable company online, I was able to get the same Aqueon 2.5 gallon kit from petsmart for 25 dollars. Huge savings over petco! I still got my betta from petco though. And like another reviewer said, the Aqueon is a great tank, very quiet. I think the shipping is cheap, so even if you can only order it off petsmart's website, it'd probably ring up under 40.
