Do betta mini heaters work for 1 gallon critter keeper

I picked up this guy and got him out of some serious yuck!

Today:

He is in a 1 gallon critter keeper and probably will be for at least a month while I am cycling a 20 gallon. I will be doing the water changes. He is in 76 degree temps at the moment. Will a Betta mini heater like they sell at Petsmart keep him warmer without melting the critter keeper?

It won't melt the critter keeper ... your hands are warmer than the heater.

Heating 1 gallon is difficult, but certainly a lot of folks do it. Just keep an eye on it, and if possible test the heater in a similar container with NO FISH for 24 hours before using it in the container with him. If it doesn't work, take it back and try a different one. I think Petsmart carries a Hydor Slim heater (the kind that goes under the gravel) that would probably work fine for 1 gallon.

The betta mini heater keeps my one gallon tanks at a constant 80 degrees. If you try it ask about their return policy at the store before you get it just in case it doesn't work that well.
