So what tank do you guys think is better?

I purchased the marineland 5 gallon crescent tank http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...d=2752372about a week ago and haven't set it up yet.....but now pet smart as the Aqueon 5 gallon mini bow for sale. Which tank do you think is better to get for my betta and possibly mystery snails as well? I see the 2.5 mini bow also has a divider version which I would like to get a divider for a 5 gallon tank though. Which one you guys think is the best one. The 5 gallon marineland crescent is $40 and the 5 gallon mini bow is $30. The Marineland comes with an led light while the mini bow has an incandescent light which I am not a fan of. Do they make an led bulb that will fit the mini bow?

I don't know about the Marineland.
The MiniBow has the fault that the base of the light breaks after a few months. I have 3 different hoods for MiniBows I cannot use, the tanks are being used for aging water.
You would be able to find a flourescent to fit the MiniBow if you decided on it.

I have the marineland 10 gal. And I love it. Mine came wit the penguin 100 filter and it works great. The led lights are good if you are gonna have fake plants...
