    Fish tank with filter. Preferably 4/5 gallons

    Looking for a cheap starter fish tank preferably 4/5 gallons (25 litre max)

    Want to get a couple of small fish, starting with a Betta. Been looking around and cant find anything Smallish, cheap and most importantly good quality.

    I don't want one of those biOrbs, heard nothing but bad things and want to give my fish more room than the baby biOrb anyways.

    Would be even better if it came with filter, heater and other beginner accessories :P

    If anyone has any recommendations please let me know

    It's bigger than you have asked for, but this is a bargain....

    Fish Tank Deal

    Also, be careful what small fish you put in with a betta, as you don't want a tank full of fin-nippers.

    Thanks, I saw that deal and was very tempted, but the size is too big for where I plan to put it unfortunately. I have found a good tank for 35.99 which is 21 litre with starter accessories, but p&p is quite dear so its kinda put me off.

    Yeah ive been reading a lot about bettas and plan to find out more this weekend, im not in a big rush and want to make sure I have everything set up before I buy any fish

    I've had various aquariums over the years ranging from 25-400 litres. I've always bought second-hand from Ebay, it's definitely the cheapest place to buy as very few people are willing to collect a fish tank, if you search by postcode you'll find plenty within 10 miles of you (there won't be many on there now due to the Christmas break).

    I bought a smallish 30 litre all-in-one aquarium (lights, filter, heater) for use as a "hospital" tank fr around £7 and it was only a year old! Personally I'd go a bit bigger and start within 40-50L as it allows you to keep a lot more fish.

    Thanks for the advice, trouble is I live in Northern Ireland and I've only managed to find two listings reasonably close to me, and both tanks are too large.

    But Im keeping an eye on ebay for cheap postage and a decent size tank, i'll not rush into anything because I want to get it right. Looking for something with a decent filter and at least some form of a heater (although I can buy one separate)

    But thanks again for the advice

    Give it a few weeks are there will be definitely be a lot more on there; there's always a post-Christmas lull for larger items on Ebay January.
