A couple of heaters overheated their tanks and had to be unplugged. That's been the biggest nightmare.....especially at water-change time.
What size tank do you have?

That betta is AMAZING! LOVE!

I use 25w Marineland visitherm in all my 2.5g. You might try those.

Thank you!! Wow he is beautiful (I dunno about $1000-beautiful though...) But I'm a little disappointed... I was hoping for white fluffy "ears" XD That would make great contrast with the black but I don't know if that's even genetically possible.
I see a lot of really cool salamanders who have it (and a few other light colors), but it seems like the darker colors all have darker pectorals as well.

Oh, really? I've read mixed reviews about the Marineland Visitherm....usually the higher wattage ones.....something about the light on the heater remains on even though it isn't giving off heat any more, so you think it's working but it's not. But, if you've had a good experience with the 25w ones, I will give them a try...thanks for the advice! :)

IDK I've had several 25w and 50w and never had a problem with any, except one I dropped and it broke but that was my fault.

Ok, good to know! I'll give them a try....I want to gradually replace all my "pre-set" ones with heaters I can rely on and have more control over. :)

I think Jager also might have a 25w. I know they make good heaters overall. So one of those two I'd try. I have the Marineland because my LFS sells them and it's easy.

I was taking pictures and had forgotten about this guy. He's from my Purple line that throws Black, (among other colors). I had crossed with a Big Ear Salamander HMPK and this showed up in the spawn. A Black Delta with White, not real big Big Ears; but there you go. Here's the father (a Purple EEDTHMPK) to the last spawn that are about a month old and I already see some Black Doubletails. There should be a few Black EEDTHMPK in the mix. I can't wait for those $1,200.00 bids to come in. Ha ha ha!!!

I decided to give aquabid a try for selling a few of my fish. Ive purchased but never sold there. Any advise as a seller is appreciated. Maybe you Chard? This is my ad here, unfortunately I can only ship in Canada without a major hassle.
