I was told by the fish store that my Betta could live in an unheated bowl, which he's been in since Saturday when he came home.
I've read up all about him and now know that he needs to be heated!
I have a larger tank and heater ready to go... Here's the problem
The water he's in is 58degrees F (I can't believe he's in it, poor thing)
The thermostat on my heater only goes down to 68degrees
I know I shouldn't change his temp too drastically.
How do I best raise the temp from 58 to 68, given that I can't set the thermostat lower? It takes about 1 hour for the tank water to warm up to 68 and its currently not warm, and he's in the cold bowl.
If I put him in the tank and warm it up over the next hour to 68 degrees will he suffer?
Advice gratefully received
