I have that tank, just not the betta version.
Personally I would not keep more than one betta in it as it is too small.
I like the tank overall but I have had no luck with the filter, I find it is always clogged so now I have taken it out.
I also find that the light gets really hot so I would keep a close eye on the temperature.

Here is a nice 5 gal. tank for $14.99 plus shipping:

http://www.fish.com/item/aquatic-edg...-5-gal/701002/

Comes with everything except gravel & heater! :)

I own this tank and it works fine. I purchased it from fish.com and everything was good and shipping was fast.

If you ARE able to get that tank, be sure you don't use the plants or rock that comes with it. The plants are too rough for a betta, IMO, and one of our members lost a betta to the rock with the fish got stuck in one of the smaller holes.

The filter that comes with the tank is terrific since it is adjustable.

im sort of on a budget though... ive only got about $120 to spend on my betta, and i want to rescue a female betta, @abby, you wanna give me a link to a 5 gallon tank that is cheap and with the decor, plants, and gravel all included, it will add up to less than $120?

NOBODY includes gravel that I know of.

They have glass marbles and small bags of natural gravel and small bags of smooth natural rocks for $1.00 a bag at Dollar General. They probably have the same kind of stuff at the Dollar store also. :)

If you get this at walmart, I have this one and it works great:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tetra-5-Ga...undle/13228131
But I didn't get the one with the heater, it might not work right. That would only cost up to 30-32 dollars buying it in the store.
Plus a heater like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Hydor-THEO-Sub...9087716&sr=1-2
I don't know the shipping, but you might be able to find it in a store, or something similar for a similar price.
And gravel and plants:
You can get gravel for less than 5 dollars at walmart or petsmart,
and also at walmart they have flourescent light bulbs for around 5 dollars.
For plants, you could get a live one for 5 dollars or less.
Same for silk/plastic. Though most silk plants i've seen here cost more than that.

Something like that....?
C:

You should have enough if you look around a while to find what you want.
