Best tank for Betta

I'm new to fish. It's my boyfriend who takes care of our tanks. He's been doing it for years.

I'm starting to find it cruel that Bettas are sold/kept in those tiny jars at PetCo. BF said I could "rescue" one.

I was thinking of getting Fluval Spec 2.5 gallon. Would this be good for a single Betta?

I have no plans of adding anything else to the tank. Well, maybe a snail, and of course a plant.

Yeah, 2.5 or 5 would be considered the minimum for a Betta.
A lot of people keep them in Spec's so you should have no problems.

You could even add a few shrimp or that snail you mentioned, along with a some easy to keep plants.

Thanks. I'd like a 5. However, space is an issue. We have a studio in Brooklyn. And my BF already has a 5g and a 35g... And, I'm letting him get a 55g. So, not much space left. One file cabinet with enough room for the 2.5 on top.
