They were all less than 5 months
Im looking for new heaters for my 3 gallons, Im getting rid of all of those brand (marine) which is what I have in my smaller tanks (which are the ones that went wonky)

my roommate came home with a nice little surprise for me
Incase power goes out and the apartment heater does not come on he bought me a minnie heater that can by plugged in (has surge protector) and set to a certain temp (it will kick on if the room gets less than the set temp)

awww that was nice of your roomie

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Ugh, how sad! I guess I am blessed to live in a state that never gets anything lower than the 50's..

May they rest in peace.

It was, I have it set up in my room (two large windows so its hard to heat) and it keeps the room in the 80s... we had power go out again last night, luckily it came back on within a few minutes, but the temps for all of my tanks still dropped really low (from 82 to 76) so it was still a big scare, I went and talked to managment about it this morning and they are trying to fix the problem (cable has been out also, not sure whats going on)
my BF says its all becauses its 2012

I don't know why but my Lakitu is fine in all temp water. When the heater got kicked out of the wall socket (today) the water was about 68F and he's fine swimming around. He was never clamped or cold before I got the heater and while I was away at christmas time, I had my mom put him in a small qt for the change (bc I knew she didn't want to clean everything in his 3g and set up the heater and etc. And I didn't trust the bettatherm in a smaller tank). Anyway, Lakitu is not fazed by colder water.. I hope this is not unique to him, bc I'd like another betta and I want to know they'll be okay if there is no heater :)

Most bettas are like that, its actually my dumb luck that while I was gone the temperature dropped to the low 30s and even the 20s... of course, it has since picked up and has even been in the 80s a few days for the new year
