Thanks :) I'll bury it in the sand. It's a small aqueon heater, like the size of a chapstick.

I don't have flakes. I have these high protein but garbage crumble things. I prefer to just feed them bloodworms. Also, how often should they eat? I usually gutload them once a week with like a half block of worms (minus the few my fish eat)

there are these heating pads that don't need to be in the water but under the recipient is space saving, small and i think ideal for your setup.
Here are some details:

  • Increases water temperature 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit over ambient room temperature (2.7-5.4 degrees Celcius)
  • Right-angle cord attachment allows for easy heater placement in the bottom of the tank without straining the power cord
  • Can be used for glass or acrylic plastic bowls and tanks between 1-3 gallons
Measures 3 1/8 inches across. Non-adjustable 7.5 watts

Thanks! I had a bettatherm before but it burnt out. I don't think they're worth what they charge for those.
Also, update, in about an hour the 10w heated the water to 85F so I unplugged it. I'll see about setting up the 2.5 for them but it sees an awful waste of space (well, nothing to really look at in there besides the snails. Nothing to take the middle-top of the water.

Bloodworms is more like a treat more than daily food. Its like giving them candy everyday a varied diet flakes or pellets and ocasional worms, you could try ordering pellet food through the internet. I hear bettas prefer pellets than flakes my bettas kinda go PUAh when i tried flakes on them. So picky lol

You only feed your bettas JUST once a week? Or you feed them pellets throughout the week also?

I'm asking because today when I got home I found cirocs pellet jar on my bed,chewed, with missing pellets ( I later found while sweeping. Lol) thanks to both my dawgs-.-

And I feed him bloodqorms once a week when I do a water change too, which was last night.
Think he will be okay till Saturday or Sunday?
