Cool Hobbes' new home

I got Hobbes his new 2 gallon tank set up about two weeks ago. Here are some pictures. You can see him a little better in the second one.





[The filtering doesn't look too good because I had forgotten to put one of those stones at the bottom. I had two of them but because i bought everything used I had no instructions. I figured it out when I changed the water though .

I'm thinking of getting him a heater ASAP because he's in the basement and it gets pretty cold at night. I'm just not sure what kind of heater I would need for such a small tank. I also don't have much money. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help

So cute! He seems to like it. :)

You can get a Tetra heater from Walmart for 2 gallons, it's preset to 78 degrees. It works fairly well in my 2.5 gal. Hydor minis may also work, though those only raise the room temperature a few degrees.

My Hydor mini heater worked well in the 2 gallon I had.

Thanks everyone! during the night it goes down about 2 degrees Celsius and then it goes back up. So it's at like 23 during the day and then goes down to like 21 during the night.

I was looking at the hydor mini, but since it doesn't have a thermostat I was worried that there would be that temperature change. Would it affect my fish if it is usually at say 27 degrees and then during the night it comes down to 25 and then back up during the day? or as long as the temp in the tank is between 25 to 27 he will be fine?

I personally would recommend a heater with a thermostat because I'd be worried about temperature extremes/swings without one. Your tank is very cute by the way :)
