I was wondering if this would be ok? as a betta tank:

I can get a 10L one that's more than 1G but what is 10l = to in G? Is it like 2.6g?

I think maybe those tanks are a bit small. Betta's need a heated, filtered tank and a tank that size is a bit small to be kept heated. I think the I read somwhere that the smallest size tank that you can safly keep heated would be a 2.5 gallon. :-\ Betta's can "live" in a 2.5 gallon but will do best in at least a 5 gallon tank.

You might try looking for one of these and Walmart here has the Marineland Eclipse Hex 5 for $29.95 for the whole kit without the heater.  Anyway there are these that would work very nicely for a betta and a couple small friends.




This one is the one that is $29.95 at Walmart:



There are also other shopping places to look online if you want to browse.







I hope this helps a little.

I found something simular to what Rose found.




Its the smallest you can go if you want a heater. I think its dirt cheap too.
