Question Tank upgrade advice

Hi everyone,

I currently have a Fluval Chi (19l) with a betta and some rummy nose tetras.
I would really like to give them more space and maybe get a pleco or something small..
Can anyone suggest a good tank, maybe around 30l?
The Fluval Edge looks really nice but I don't think George (my betta) would like it as it doesn't have any airspace at the top..
I want something with a nice design but also not noisy

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

My own preference is to buy the tank and then equipment apart I confess. Is that a 30 long or 30 litres?

Have you looked at SeaClear tanks? My local Petco sales them and they are around the same price as the edge. They are seemless acrylic which looks very sharp.

A 19 liter tank (5 gallons) is small for a Betta. I would suggest at least a 40 liter (10 gallons) for a Betta. Put some natural plants, Nerite Snails, and Ghost Shrimp in the tank and call it a day. It is a myth that Bettas can thrive in teacup sized tanks. in their natural habitat, they prefer large pools of water, not small puddles.
