Hi guys i dont know if you remember me but im the guy who bought that mini bowl with the filter that was too strong. anyway two weeks ago i upgraded my tank to a 5 gallon tank and just yesterday my quiet flow 10 and 50 watt aquarium heater came in from the mail. and before you ask yes i was doing what i could before to keep the water warm and changing out fractions of the water every few days.
my question is that the heater and filter have been on for almost 24 hours now. they are sitting right next to each other on the smaller of the tank walls. now the filter works great Ive seen much improvement already but the heater only seems to heat half of the tank and my Betta Soichiro's hangout and hiding place has always been on the opposite side. and that side is still colder and of course every thermometer i own is currently broken so i cant check the temp but Soichiro is still just chilling at the bottom of the tank and not really wanting to do much.
any ideas to solve this matter?
