im quite happy with mine, as i have nothing to remove for water changes. the difference between glass and water is positively not that huge to cause a problem. mainly they need to show the temp plus or minus a degree and that it is constant, which is just as important as showing the temp imo.

No disrespect to your friend, but most pet store employees are unfortunately not very betta savvy. Despite different opinions you'll find on here, one thing that we can ALL agree on is that bettas need warm water. They're tropical fish after all. I would get him a heater ASAP.

Hi there :) I have a divided ten gallon too except mine is divided in three. Heater is for sure reccomended. I have a 25 watt one thats good for up to ten gallon tanks and I used them in my one gallons as well before I moved my bettas. It's preset but never budges. Water is always at 78. It was around 22 dollars I think.

as for the plants, only one of them is plastic, the others are silk plants. I was actually talking to my friend who works at a pet store, and she said that I dont need a heater, so there is a lot of confusion as to what i "really need".
So i got a sticker thermometer and i will see what room temp. in my hosue is :)

the water is still cloudy but clearing up!

BTW we bought another fish lol. My boyfriend will be joining here ASAP!
My local fish store told me there was no way to heat my one gallon tanks when I had my bettas in those and that they'd be just fine without a heater. My tanks were getting to 55 degrees....
