I actually just got the 1 gallon tank the topic creator put in their original post. It's actually one from Wal-Mart of a different brand but is basically the same exact tank.
My poor little dude had to make due with a vase for about a week and he seems much happier in this little one gallon. I know it's not ideal but that's all I can do for now. He seems pretty active and amused and it looks really pretty in the kitchen. He has his little marimo moss ball and the tank comes with a really nice little light. I did not use the filter thing that came with it because I deemed it unnecessary.

The critter keeps are cheap and functional. But not offense to those who use them, but they kinda look cheap, especially with the lid. I guess you could always take the lid off but still don't care for the looks. Sorry guys. :(

That's the tank I have for Nixon, I didn't put the filter system in it either, it would take from what little room he has LOL I used the pump on my 20g air stone, love it. He's moving up to a divided 10g though, but its a great starter tank.Helped me in a pinch!

Critter keepers are good homes for bettas, and cheap too!
The only thing I don't like about them is how it looks. It does look very cheap but whatever xD

As an alternative to critter keepers, you can make your own glass tank for really cheap (not counting buying the glass cutter and silicone, but that's a one time purchase for multiple hand made tanks).

http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1...kuId=202939045

I used that brand of glass to make my own 4 gal tank. I used two of the 8x10 sheets and 3 of the 10x12 sheets. Cost me 10.92 before tax and tools. The glass cutter is 6 bucks (you don't need one of these if you don't care about looks, even then intelligent design can make it a non issue), and the silicone was like five bucks. I've made several of these small tanks for friends and family with the first tube of silicone I bought. Just make sure the silicone is 100% WITHOUT antimold chemicals in the silicone.

I believe GE windows and Doors type I is good for tanks, it was recommended to me by my local aquarium club. Do not buy type II, it has anti mold in it.
