Jsmith - a heater is best but I find that with vases and bowls with the curved glass, most heaters won't fit. I would think something like this would work. I have never used it so I can't say how well they work. Also a theometer is needed to keep an eye on the temp. I don't think this has an auto shut off which means it will stay on even if the water gets too hot.

Also, I know people have already mentioned the water change thing already but its very important to do the weekly changes to remove the ammonia. When you do the 100%, you also need to be cleaning out the gravel to remove any poop and debris that has fallen into the gravel. if not, it will pollute the water

Those are her biggest things. Surprised there isn't holes in our floors lol..

Like you though she has a HUGE love for animals.. especially reptiles and birds.. but does love my fish and loves to watch them.
I don't create winds but will self bite and pick at scabs.

I keep lucky bamboo in both my tanks coming out the opening. I also keep plants in my filters.

Okay I went to Walmart today and bought a heater and a thermometer. Changed the water, rinsed off the rocks, conditioned the water as well. He seems to be doing better today so I'm happy I got the heater! And it's tiny so fits perfectly in the bowl.

I also don't know why people are saying this is a pointless thread. Without it I'd be in the dark and my fish would be in the toilet. So whoever thinks it's pointless is wrong!

Actually that was me and the reason I think its pointless is because all it does is cause arguments and is incendiary. The OP has made a few choice comments on other threads, one of which was removed because she rudely told the person to give away her fish because she wasnt fit to be a fishkeeper, so it would not surprise me that this thread was started to call attention to herself. If you want info on how to care for your fish there are other threads that are much more informative.
