If you do the $1 gallon route, you can get a much bigger tank (Easier to maintain for a first SW tank) for very cheap. The downside is, then you're stuck having to buy everything else separately and trying to make sure that it all fits together.

It all just depends on how much work you're willing to put into the tank. If you need help, I've got no problem helping you build a tank on a budget. You can also check out www.reefcentral.com for some great tips on how to do some of this stuff as well.
i don't plan on getting/building a tank just yet, i need to put money away for other things first :/

and i'm just gonna have it on my desk, not much room for a stand in my room

If you do, DEFINITELY get a lid. I've made the mistake of either thinking it wouldn't jump or accidentally leaving a little gap when I put the lid back on, only to come back and find that my betta had evolved into a crispy, landgoing betta.

we lost a few snakeheads to jumping years ago, and there was a damn lid on the tank. had to weigh the damn thing down with a brick after that

Losing Snakeheads is a good thing though. You shouldn't even be keeping them in the first place...

I had a $50 purchase jump out of the tank before and I came into the living room with my dog chewing on a bright piece of what I thought was one of her toys she ripped up, nope expensive SW fish.

Also had a fish jump out of a tank in the pet shop and smack my daughter on the face, lol.

ok fish jumping out of a tank and hitting someone in the face is pretty funny, but i'm gonna look into the beta tank a bit more, been wanting one but i just need to find a place where it will look good at in my room.

also there is an empty 30 gal tall tank sitting in the family room, we had fish in it but they died, i'm thinking of putting some gouramis in it. yes no?

A. Had them when they were legal and just have a bullseye now
B. Their impact on the environment is really not to large, especially when compared to Asian carp, white perch (native to parts of the us), round gobis and countless other invasives. The ban is largely due to ignorance and public outcry
C. I am pretty sure he wont be decimating native populations from his tank



And for the record any invasive is bad but if you ban a pet because it could harm native populations when released then you need to ban most every pet.




I also almost lost a large indo datnoid to jumping...that would have suuuuuucked if I was not right there when it happener
