thank you, i'll look around for that one. i was going to accept tetra brand before i heard its issues to cook fish. amazon has them for $18 and free Super Saver Shipping for +$25 orders. how much can they go for in the stores/LFS? ive found a 10w at Petco, dont remember the brand.

im going to stop the AQ treatment. hopefully clean freshwater will help him heal.

He is in a 1.5 gallon. I clean it twice a week. (one a water change and the other I use a siphon.)

Personally, I have never had any trouble putting a 25 watt submersible, adjustable heater in 1.75 gals. You just have to tinker with it for a bit till you get it set at the temp you want.

heh, I lol'd. Yea, I was told if the mirror trick wont get him to flare I should put the mirror in front of him then lightly tap his tail with a stick. He will think the other betta (the reflection) is attacking him and flare in response. It's not like I pulled him out of the tank and beat him into submission :P

found a hydor 25W heater for $30 in a LPS, didnt get it yet as i dont know if its a bit over priced. is it worth it if i pay an extra $10 locally (or $60+ for 2 locally) or pay $40 for 2 of them online so i can also put it in the 2.5g? purchased a silk plant while at the LPS, its almost the same fake plants my mom has put in various locations in the house for decorations.

I would get two of the Elite Mini 25 watt heaters off Amazon - $30.06 for both and FREE shipping!!!! Yes, I have a few of these heaters & they work well.

Better hurry, though, there are only 3 left!!!
