I have a 5g right now. i dont plan on getting the corys till i start my 10g which should be this month. the first time i noticed the water temp was at 85 i almost flipped. i thought i was frying my fish. but he seems to love it.
its weird tho. the heater i have is a lil 10 dollar heater that raises the water temp only 3 degrees from what it was normally. i know the light can raise the temp as well but it only on for around 8hrs of each day. so normally its around 81-82 degrees.
when i transfer my betta to the 10g i want to keep the same temp as in the 5g. but since the corys max temp is around 79, i might have to drop the temp so i dont flash fry them.
ive read that a 10g would be decent for 1 betta and 3 corys. would it be worth it in the long run to up grade 5g's bigger?
