i was at a fish auction and my friends father went up to a senior betta breeder there and said he is new to betta breeding. he came over to me and said" here kid you'll need this. my first reaction was omg i just got a 55 g tank for free (i left the ten dollars there, but he insisted that i just take it).

10 gallon with all accessories (filter, heater, thermometer, food, water conditioner, hood with fluorescent light bulb, and net) - $10 after petco pals card discount, a gift card, and a mail-in rebate that was included with the kit.

Expecting to pay about $20 (splurge?) more for additional gravel, plants and tank mates, but that would put me at $30 total. Not bad at all since I already have the gravel vacuum, some gravel and plants from the smaller tank (I'm moving the betta from the small tank to the big one so I can move everything else over, too).

I got 2 5 gallon marineland tanks, one hex and one bowfront for $25. the bowfront had brand new filter media in it, and the hex was missing the intake tube and had no media, but the guy gave me an extra tetra 10 gallon filter (it seemed so big though that I ended up just finding a new tube and media for the built in filter instead >_>), and one of the pre set tetra heaters as well, and there was enough gravel in the hex for both, lol

Mini Bow 5 Gallon Aquarium Kit has a sturdy base that allows you to place the tank almost anywhere. Includes a small air pump whisper power filter, and UL-Listed, full incandescent hood with 15-watt bulb. In great condition, and comes with various supplies - Tetra Water Treatment, Ph Indicator and plastic containers, Aquarium Salt and TetraColor Fish Flakes. Great starter set!

Is that good for 20$?

Great!!!! Although, for a betta, I'd be careful about the filter, and get new water conditioner and food. I'm jealous... I want another betta.Lol

I'm getting a 10 gallon soon. If I can trade in my iTunes gift card somewhere for a PetCo/Petsmart one I could get the whole set for $15 :D If not I'm looking at $40-$50.

And they have simple stands for $20, which I'm thrilled about!

Basically if a tank is cheap, I'll get it! Because then I am always prepared for a new member ;)

(I have a 20 gallon, 5 gallon, a 2 gallon, a 1.5 gallon, and a 1 gallon, plus adding more >.<)

For Ryu: 3 gallon kritter keeper= $15
filter: free was my dads
terra cotta pot: $.99
gravel: $.99
silk plant: $2

New guy: 2 gallon kritter keeper$10
silk plants: $5
air pump: Free, was my dads
Heater: Free, was my dads

10 gallon: Erm.... tank kit=$50
substrate= $40
Live plants = $80
Fake plants = $5
Driftwood = $14
I have used some serious cash on this= ):

If you want to go cheap use silk plants and gravel!!!! lol. All of my free stuff is uneccessary (even heater as I'm in Hawaii and I can almost never turn on the AC so I just open my windows to cool my room) So, if you go for looks and purpse, it'll be expensive, if you go for just purpose it'll be cheap.
