Just got Jewel yesterday - any ideas for her ? Right now I just have her in a 1G bowl - planning full water changes 2x per week until I decide. I'd love to find a 2 gallon bowl and leave her on the counter where she is - or something else fancy so she can stay on the counter. But what type of heater can I get that is small enough for a bowl or other ideas ?

Goldie is flaring for his new girlfriend
Don't worry, he's just visiting during a water change.

You can get a Hydor 25 watt Adjustable heater for a 2 gallon bowl. I love mine! I got it from Big Al's Online. They're Canadian, but they ship to the US.

It's only $13.89, too! Nice price, right?

The price is right. But I was hoping for something smaller since this is a bowl - plus not sure how well the suction cup would stay on a rounded piece of glass. Does anyone make anything small that works well ?

You don't have to stick it to the wall. It can lay on the bottom. It's FULLY submersible. Also, anything *made* specifically for bowls isn't adjustable, which is bad.

if you get a drum bowl you'll have some flat sides. I prefer them since the round can kind of distort your view. I have a couple of these, one in a 2 gallon drum

Sometimes, Petco has the $1/gallon tank sale, which is NOICE! Look, too, for plastic ones! Theyre nice, too.

Perhaps get a small java fern? That way, its alive, eats some* ammonia (not a great ammonia eater) and looks really nice, and you dont have to worry about hurt fins. Theyre usually $3ish dollars at petsmarts in those little tubes.

I like em! No light or anything special needed, just cant bury it, nbd.
