which tank should I get???

Hi guys! I'm thinking about getting a new 5 gallon tank. I need your help with this.... I'm looking on buying the "Marineland Corner Eclipse 5g" or just buy a rectangular shaped glass 5 gallon tank with hood??? or would you guys recommend on something else?

It depends on your space. If you're low on space, a corner tank might work best. Otherwise, I'd got with a plain old rectangular one. It gives them the most space to swim in without having to turn. Plus, you can always divide it later and get another betta if you want. I'm not sure you can divide a corner tank.

thank you! yeah.. I was thinking about getting a rectangular shaped tank. I noticed that the marineland crescent tank which I currently own is the same size as the marineland eclipse corner tank. I don't like it much coz it seems like there is not enough space for my betta.

Definitely go with a rectangular one then. The more uninterrupted space they have to swim in a straight line, the better. Good luck with your new tank when you get it.

@sakura

I went to petsmart earlier today and I bought the marineland 12g eclipse tank instead for a price of $24.97. It was a great deal coz it was on clearance! :)
