How should I introduce a heater to my 2.5 gal tank? We've had a very hot summer, and since the house doesn't have A/C, the tank was always room temp (75-85F) now that its getting down to the 50's, I went and got a heater for 1-5 gal tanks (aqueon mini heater 10w with thermal safty shut off)
How do I go about introducing the heater? Reason I ask is that I don't want to just put it in and turn it on as I don't want to shock him from the sudden temp increase. I was thinking of putting her in the small container I keep her in during water changes in her water thats at the temp shes acustomed to and turning the heater on so it slowly heats the water........I justwanted to ask you guys before I did anything.
