You shouldn't need a heater for the 3 gallon. The exterior water should keep it at the same temperature as the main tank. This sounds like a cool idea be sure to post some pics!

every word going through my head is something i can't post on a family forum. some multi-four-letter-word bought him while i was at work. just the icing on top of an awful day.

Oh no! :( I would be so upset if that happened to me!! I have been browsing the bettas on ebay and I saw this one. It's an HM but his color is very similar to the one that got bought.

i think i saw the MG you're taking about and he is BEAUTIFUL. i'd totally be bidding on him, but we really want a white platinum so he's glow under the moonlight lamp.

we're currently watching and bidding on a few other WP's, that guy has definitely crossed my radar.
