I may be able to go pick up a 2.5gal today for my betta, Genesis. c:
Pretty happy, but I have two options within my budget, according to Petsmart's website. A $14 rectangular tank that is just the tank, or a $20 tank that comes with an airstone, light, and filter.
If I buy the $20 tank, I'll have no spending money for plants or anything. It will be my entire budget. So I should get the $14 tank, yeah?
Like I said I'll still have $5-6 left to spend if I get the $14 tank. I have gravel from an old aquarium I can use, and I've got 3 stalks of bamboo. To treat the gravel, I should let it sit in some warm water, right? Is bamboo alright for betta tanks? They're still small, but if I can use them, that'd be great.
I think we have terra cotta pots, so I'm going to look into taking the bottom out of one to add in. Any other suggestions on stuff I could pick up at petsmart with my whole $6? haha
