New betta ! ! !

So I finally got a betta ! I always wanted a all white betta and was at petsmart the other day and saw this betta and put him back on the shelf and went home , then all that night and the next day all I could think of was this off white betta I saw there , so I went back and bought him , he is a male I believe and I know he is a half moon betta for sure , so my first plan was to turn this gumball machine I have into a betta tank ( still will ) but I went on Craigslist and found this tetra water wonders 3 gallon aquarium with filter , plants , and light brand new for ten bucks , the only thing is the bulb was blown ( halogen light -few bucks ) , so need to replace that , also if you guys can see my cat decided too help me out with the set up and he took a break and rested in the packaging , so what you guys think ?!

very nice? How big is the 'gumball machine'? I think a tank is more appropriate, with a filter and light. Betta's also need a heater to keep temps between 78-82

The gumball machine is big enough , but as of now he has all he can be happy on a 3 gallon tank , filter , and light , as of a heater goes I'm keeping a eye on that cause when I replace that bulb it runs warm and my house stays at around 78 , so if it looks like it needs one I'll pick one up
