Profanity is against the rules. Period. If you can't think of more eloquent ways to express your anger... then you probably shouldn't be saying anything at all. We have people of all ages on here, including young people. Profanity has no place here.

Looking back, I think I was the one who brought up the heater initially, but I had no idea it would turn into this. Heaters are a good idea. I would say they are required no matter where you live. If you live somewhere hot, great, yours will probably almost never kick in. It's just there for if the temperature falls. And unless you live somewhere that never gets below 78, the temperature will fluctuate. I go to Puerto Rico once a year for vacation, and the temperature fluctuates and dips there... IN THE CARIBBEAN.

Also, it is summer. Your betta will be fine for a few days until you can get a heater. If it was winter, I would be like... OMG GO GET ONE NOW!!!But it isn't. I live in Wisconsin, and it's been over 100 with 100% humidity lately. I've been aiming fans at my fish tanks to get the temp DOWN. But trust me, when winter comes, I sure am glad for that heater. Wisconsin winters =

You seem to want to do right by your fish. Get good heaters and thermometers when you can afford it. Then post lots of pics of their progress!

After Wraith passed away (by jumping out of his closed tank somehow - I'm still baffled), I decided my tank had bad juju and I've just redecorated it, throwing out all of the old stuff and starting over. No new fish yet, but I think the tank looks pretty smangin'.

Actually, profanity is against forum rules. There are a lot of people frequenting the forums, children to adults. It's not respectful to everybody. It's not that people are necessarily offended, do you curse around your grandparents? Or in a job interview?? No.

That tank... I want!! I'd have it ruined in a day though, I'm sure.
