Heater?

Sorry for all the questions guys. I'm just really frusterated right now having 3 fish tanks in my teeny tiny room. Ok so is there any kind of heater that you don't have to plug in or anything else you can use to heat the tank without plugging it in? I can't have too many plugs plugged in in my room. I already have 5! Heater for 10g, filter for 10g, light for 2g, light for my room, and another lamp. I don't need anymore! Thanks.

None that I know if, sorry. The best way I've found for minimizing the use of outlets is divided tanks as you only need 3 per tank (light, heather, filter).
Other than that would be to keep you room at a temperature that will keep the water 78-80. That's what I do although my water keeps 80-82.

Ok thanks. Its really weird because my 10g in the same room as my 2 gallon stays warmer than the 2 gallon. Its so weird.

Well, in smaller tanks the water temperature fluctuates a lot more than in a larger tanks. Less water = more dramatic temperature change that occurs throughout the day. If you go to walmart they have this outlet expansion thing you can buy...you plug it in to the wall, so instead of two sockets on the wall, you have 6.
