I'm sure some people on here could recommend a good small heater :)
They do need it, the light is a bad idea. It will overheat the water, while a heater would stop heating once it's the right temperature.
You also can't leave a light on all night, because like us, betta DO need go sleep, weird as it sounds. So a heater is the only way to go :)
If you can, save up and get a 5 gallon to divide for your two boys. Then you can put one in the 2.5 gallon, once everyone is nice and heated! :)
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
