While at Walmart shopping with a friend, we passed the sad wall of betta bowls and as usual, most of the fish looked half dead, all but one female that was MUCH smaller than the others, only about an inch from the tip of her nose to the end of her tail fin, she was swimming around in quick circles and looked extremely healthy after a quick examination. I couldn't let her stay there when she obviously wanted to live, so I purchased her and this little tank since it was the cheapest one with a filter, most betta tanks don't have one, but I prefer them.
The filter is really small and quiet, if you place the suction cups all the way up the tank as far as they can go, then you can fill the tank up within half an inch of the top easily and the filter doesn't take up a lot of room in the tank either.
The lighted bubbler is a little annoying since it wants to float, but I piled on the gravel and placed a few small river rocks on the lip to keep it down. If you don't have these, then Walmart sells an entire pack for a little over $1.
The entire set up comes with an air pump that is extremely quiet as well as valves that allow you to customize how powerful the filter and airstone become, with my betta I put it on the lowest setting and the current doesn't effect her at all.
Overall, it's a great little tank for a betta, but I am planning to upgrade since at the time I only had thirty bucks on my person and couldn't splurge on a bigger tank.
