Welcome to AA!

How about this? Much more surface area, and almost half the price...

Welcome to Auarium Advice..

I keep/breed bettas (and oscars) and I wont keep mine in anything smaller then 5 gallon tanks with a good filter and heater. Yes your betta can survive in a small bowl but he will thrive in a bigger tank.

Thank you guys so much for the info and aid!

@fort384 I really like that aquarium... A friend ended up giving me one of their old 10 gallon rectangles... which is not what I wanted as far as style, but it fit the rest of my goals which were a larger space for my betta and aquarium plants. Seeing how that is a good price, I might get it, though I wonder where the light is located.

its on the wood box, its a filter and a light, my GF has one (that i just did a PWC on, in fact) and her betta loves it! she also had a biorb, but it was a biorb life so i can't say much about the sphere one. either are good though i dont think the lights on either could support plants..

very helpful.

Yea, I figured as much. Right now I have all my orchids inside (winter) so have plant lights set up next to the aquarium, but this is temporary.

If I want to go for style (on the cheap) I will just have to make my own decorative fixture with plant florescent close to the aquarium... I knew that would probably be the case anyway.

Thanks!.... now, globe or box, that is the question.

my daughter has a betta and it is in a 5 gallon tank with a plant, internal filter, heater, and air stone and he is quite happy and content in it. i agree that bowl will get crowded soon if u decide to put plants in it.

@johmartz: I like that one a lot... looks good for plant life too.

I was thinking of expanding my horizons to some guppies... ha! I know that doesn't sound adventurous, but since I got this free tank I thought I would just have some typical tropical fish in it, then get a decorative tank for my betta since I like'm so much... flamboyant and all.
