Buying this type of heater is really penny wise and pound foolish when a adjustable thermostatically controlled decent quality heater is only a couple of bucks more. Most heaters of this type last a good long time and most manufacturers will replace a defective heater fairly quickly.
Which is why I made the suggestion for an adjustable heater.

thanks heaps for the advice. the leaves are all out of the water, but quite a lot of the stem is submerged. do you think it will be ok like this?

You are most welcome! Unfortunately I'm not very well versed in keeping "lucky bamboo" however I would assume that, as long as the leaves are out of the water, it'd be all right. The species name is Dracaena sanderiana if you'd like to do a bit of research into it, I've just taken a look online and can't see any problems with keeping the stem submerged like that, lots of people have done it to my recollection. The leaves are the problem and not the stem (when it comes to being submerged).

New tank

Here's my new tank. Haven't got a betta for it just yet:


I'm a bit worried that there's too many bubbles coming out of the feature for a betta, but I'm not sure yet. I might get a floating feeding circle to break up the current on the surface a bit. Or poke a hole in the pipe!

I'll get a thermometer tomorrow, too. Though being in Australia, I'm confident that the tank will be warm enough for a betta, even without a heater.

Do you think it'll need somewhere more for hiding?

Weissritter, you can buy a control valve for the air to control the output so it's not as strong. They're fairly inexpensive.

Emmalee01 about your bamboo as long as leafs are out of water you're fine lucky bamboo provides oxygen to the air through the leafs so if you submerge them the plant will start dying you can have the bamboo all the way in the water as long as the leafs are out that's what I read when I was researching for bamboo sticks with for my aquarium

If those are the stones that are plastic with sharp edges, my betta got cut up from those before. Be careful!
