Well, you could always try the betta, and if it doesn't work, set up a little 10 gallon for him

Wow! 13? I'm impressed! You are SMART! My 11 year old is embarrassed. She says "How awkward!"

Ummm..I'm leaning toward Betta, but I will decide after I see how big of a tank I'm going to get.

How about sand/gravel. I think I want white (or off white) sand...what is good for growing plants? Simple plants? I'm not going to do anything special....

Basically lol. That should get you down to around 0 ammonia, .5 nitrite, and 2.5 nitrate. Much more survivable.
