Can anyone recommend a good heater for a 3-5 gallon and one for a 10 gallon? I don't mind if it's online or in a store. Would appreciate something less expensive since the expensive ones I've been buying tend to die. :-/
Might make a separate thread for heater questions.
I know people have bashed this heater before here, but I've been using this one for over a year in a 5 gallon and two 2 gallon tanks. It keeps the water a steady 78o F when the ambient room temp drops on rare occasions. I also have used it successfully in a little less then a gallon bowl I use for quarantine and medicine treatment if they get sick. (/come home sick from pet store.) The heater is not adjustable so it would not be good for raising a tank above 78. They go on sale for around 10 dollars a few times a year.
your tub setup btw. What kind of filter are you going to put in there? and can you link to the box size you settled on please? (for Betta not ferret carrier) ;)
As a side note, If anyone is interested in upgrading their tanks watch Petco, I missed the sale last time, but they put all of their All Glass tanks up for $1 a gallon. (10 gallons and above, their 5 gallon tanks and under are normal price during the sale.)
The fish manager I talked to there told me the sale happens a couple times a year. I am going to pick up a 55 gallon tank when the sale rolls around this next time. ;)
