Plastic tank

Did anyone tried plastic tanks like 5 gallons or more, is it good and can live or it doesn’t worth, because its cheaper than the glass ones and I’m thinking of a Betta tank

Not worth it. Plastic scratches really easily and you cant get them out.
Glass is better. Wait for a dollar per gallon sale or look at a lfs for a used tank.
I got a 10g for $10

Thanks for your information, is there other problems than scratching?

I had a few 5 gal betta tanks that were plastic. Except for the scratching, didn't have much issue with them. Not sure if they held the heat in as well as glass in the winter, though.

Ok thanks, Don’t they release toxins in the tank?
