How can the filter and heater wires get to the outlet with the glass top?

You don't have the glass top completely covering the tank..still need to have some air circulation, so I keep the wires and stuff going out the back side of the tank, as well as the light clamp, then you just cover the tank the rest of the way.

None, as long as you keep the tank full lol. It makes a trickling noise as it pushes water over the surface if you let the levels drop below the spout. Otherwise, no motor sounds or anything. At least for the Tom Mini Internal filters that I use. :)

Another alternative for a filter is the Azoo mini filter. It's external, but is very quiet. I haven't tried it with long finned bettas yet, but I have it on Brutus' tank on the lowest setting. I think the internal filter works better for long finned bettas, but either would work for a shorter finned betta.

And he/she will be very grateful to you for doing so! Keep in mind, you can always upgrade your betta laterif you want to (once you have a place you can have a larger tank) and keep this smaller tank on hand to have as a hospital tank if needed. :)

Can't wait to see what you get!

Only thing I've noticed with them is that you have to put a sponge over the intake, or your fishy can get stuck to it or get his fins torn. (I had it happen with a previous betta.)

here's a pic of how I have the glass on Draco's tank, from above of course lol. I still need to get a light for both Sapphira and Shadowfax's tanks, but they're expensive and the ones I want, the company that makes them isn't selling anything right now.
