Summer is winding down and Sparkle is going to need a heater very soon
. I have read so many different reviews about what is the best type/brand/etc. I AM GOING NUTS
Sparkle is in a 5 gallon glass tank with silk plants, Marina Floating Thermometer, FlowerBall, and glass Luster Gems as substrate. I had to remove his HOB filter ... all of a sudden he flares like crazy at anything black/dark outside of his tank....
His tank is in the den on my desk ... near a window. The room during the winter is about 65 to 70 degrees. I do not turn on the heat in the room because my desk is in front of the electric heating item. Room keeps at the temps from heat on in other rooms nearby.
What is the best/most reliable filter for his tank?
Would one that is put horizontally on top (or is under better) of the 'glass' substrate cause any issues?
Please help me out ... it is already dropping down into the upper 50's and low 60's outside at night. I have been wrapping a towel around his tank for the night but I am not sure if that is good enough ... but for now it is all I can do until I buy the heater.
Thanks A Betta-Bunch !!!
