Lightbulb Pictures of Bookshelf tanks anyone?

Or anything from 2.5-9 gallons.

I currently have two Betta and was thinking of getting them their own bookshelf tanks when I get back to Oregon. I'm currently in Hawaii for school and will most likely be continuing school back in Oregon but the college I got into only allows tanks under 10 gallons. Lame compared to the one here in Hawaii that allows up to 20 gallons.

I was insterested in the bookshelf tank because, well, it can fit on a bookshelf. I was looking into the ones at petco and read that people have been having issues with the hood and filter it comes with. Any suggestions on what to do about that?

I would also be interested in a non bookshelf tank as well. I'm just looking for ideas on how people set up their tanks :) I'm interested in sand and real plants but plastic would work well too along with gravel.

I would love it if you guys posted pictures of your tanks!

But yeah, the petco is the one I was looking at. I'm just looking for decorating ideas and how other people have their tank set up.

Is it a built in filter or a hang on back? I was thinking about switching Huey to one of these because his tank sits on a window sill between my kitchen and dining room and the eclipse is too tall.

No, it's just the one it comes with. I read reviews about it and a lot of people have replaced it with a different one. Along with the hood.

I bet a sponge filter would work well for these.

Thanks! You can fit a lot more in this tank than I originally thought.
