So a while ago I bought a fluval chi when my betta died, and I got a nee betta. Along with the tank I bought a cover, but the cover doesnt fit over my heater. Well..... last night I went on a sleepover, but I came home this morning with the news that my parents found my darling, darling betta on the floor..... he was doing so well, and he was the most beautiful pale colored betta I have ever seen....
Does anyone have any experience with fluval chis? I know now that theyre realy not the most practical tanks, but it was expensive so I probably won't be replacing it any time soon. The cover you can buy for it only fits over the filter in the middle, and every heater I find seems to be above water (which isnt a problem normally! but with the cover theres literally no heater that can fit, i honestly dont know WHAT fluval was thinking with this tank; 5 gallons of unheated water?)
I've been looking but the only totally submersible heater I can find is that tiny marina "betta" heater made for their .5 gallon prisons
Would it be better to see if I could find a heater to fit the tank, or should I just cut around the heater I have?
