OK, I need input choosing a tank and I'm hoping some of you might help...
I currently have 3 betta boys, and will be adding another one next week. I have one boy in a regular glass 5.5 gallon, one in a 3.5 gallon, and one have a 5 gallon Hawkeye http://hawkeyeaquarium.com/prod_deta...p?cat=20&p=119
I bought the Marineland Cresent (% gallon) and I HATE it! The included filter broke within a few hours and the permanent holes in the lid constantly have to be covered because I have a jumper.
I like the regular 5.5 gallon glass ok, but it can be expensive to set up another one.
The Hawkeye has a great setup, and is inexpensive, but I'm frustrated with how condensation forms on the inside of the hood (and light fixture!) and then runs down the side of the tank when I open the hood to do maintenance.
I'm looking for ideas for a good, inexpensive 5 gallon tank. My preference is for something lighter weight, and it needs to have a complete hood. Oh, and I will be putting in live plants, so it needs to have decent lighting?
I'm going to try to include a poll, but I appreciate any additional input.
