What and where to get a 10Gallon setup

My name is Christina, I'm on a tight budget, but I'm getting sick of my five gallon tank, and looking towards a 10 gallon. I am overwhelmed by all the different companies and opinions and prices. I go to local pet stores and get a different opinion every visit. Any advice?

I'm just looking for a simple tank setup. Basic square tank and the bare essentials with a budget if ideally 40$ or less. I tried craigslist, but find I'm unsure if what I need as far as brands and watts and sizes. Is this going to be Impossible? Fresh water with live plants and the three guppy's I have now to start.

Thanks for the reply.

Here's a 10 gallon starter at Petsmart for $40, but does not include heater or stand. Do you need a stand or do you already have a place to put it? Are you going to be using some of the accessories form your 5 gallon for the 10, or do you plan on keeping the 5 and need everything for the larger tank?
