I need some help deciding what size tank to make..... it is unfiltered
so I can make a 5 gallon $2 per piece of glass i have lots of extra plants and gravel so glass will be the only cost. stocking will be one betta and nerate snail.

8 gallon $3 per piece of glass i will get some white sand for this and might have to buy a few more plants. stocking is betta and a few cherry shrimp

27 gallon $5 per piece of glass i will have to get some more plants and sand. stocking is 1 betta a nerate snail 6 dwarf corys and mabye 5 neon tetras if that wont overstock it

thanks for your help! also here is eclipse the betta who will be living here

I don't live near petco... so it is $26 for a 5 gallon $31 for a 10 gallon and $80 for a 20 gallon.

I did look into it a bit more and the glass does look safe to make a tank out of plus i will pick it up in person so i will be able to look it over more then.

if I go with the 27 gallon would I overstock it by putting in 5-6 neons?
the stocking would be one betta 6 dwarf corys and a nerate snail. I know this would normally be fine but it is unfiltered.... and will of corse have a TON of plants.
