Eh.. what do you guys think?

I'd love to put one of my tanks in my room, but for now they are in my betta pad downstairs. I think I could slid by with this tank

http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/pet/2285115322.html

It's about a 5g, so one of my boys would be happy in there. What do you guys think? I really like it, its super nice and cute to me, but I will fer sure be making her a offer of less then $200.. Prolly like $150-$170..

Any way, should I even try?

It LOOKS cool, but Bettas prefer more horizontal space then vertical space. I wouldn't put a Betta in a tank that high up and down.

Maybe get 5 male guppies? No females or else they'll reproduce!

You're welcome! I'd get 2 more females to go with the 3 you're getting. They prefer groups of at least 5. =)

Get the bigger tanks if you have money for it. Then you could even set up a community tank with your guppies, and some other fish.

True True.. plus my mom did a surprise attack on me with some cute lamp eye tetras.. She said she "Swung by" PetSmart and saw them on sale.. She said she was looking for Bleeding Hearts but they had none so she picked up 3 lamp eyes. I've placed them into my 10g with my 3 girls bettas and cories. I know its over stocked, but I couldn't leave them in the bag. So, I set up my 2nd 10g my dad baught me, and the water is settling so they'll be going in there either tonight or early tomarrow. Along with I think they need 1 or 2 more buds.. Yeah I'm gonna get the 30 & 45g. I really want to set up a few communites.. Mom can be mad if she wants.. I'll be like "WELL!! You baught me tetras..." x.x... I guess thats her way of being supportive.

Why are you giving away your female Bettas, then? Couldn't you just set up a sorority?
