A Good Inexpensive Tank?

Hi! I've had my betta fish for a few days now, and it doesn't like it's tank all that much, it's pretty small? is there a 2.5 gallon or higher tank that doesn't cost a lot of money, I'm low on money right now :P

I would recommend a Critter keeper or a clear storage container if you don't mind that they aren't the best looking tanks ever. They are very inexpensive. Stick a small heater and a few plants in there and you're good to go!

There is a 5 gallon kit that walmart sells that is pretty good. It doesn't include a heater, but you can always get one separately.

Walmart.com: Tetra Aquarium Starter Kit, 5 Gallons: Fish

I have a Sterilite container that is see through (clear with no tint) that holds 2.5-3 gallons for one of my bettas. It works well and sterilite is safe.
I bought it from the dollar store for only 5 dollars. :)

Oh, sorry, I did not see your last comment, haha

My fish Cleo is currently in that 5 gallon kit from walmart, he loves it.
My fish Batman is currently living in a critter keeper, he seems to love this as well.

Cleo also lived in a heated 2 gallon cookiejar for 8ish months before I got the 5 gallon tank kit.

The glass cookie jar was about 5 dollars at walmart. The mini heater was about 10.
