I have a similar situation. Finley, my new betta, lives in a little bowl with no heater. The room is too cold and I cannot adjust the theromstat. A cheap little self-adjusting ceramic heater that warms the room ABOVE 75 seems to be doing the trick for now. Maybe you have a space heater you could use? If you don't, please reply. There are other things you might be able do right away until you get the heater.

Finley has a holiday wish list and is expecting some gifts, but this is working until he gets a bigger habitat with a heater and thermometer and all those nice things.

At least he seems happy, even if I'm wearing summer clothes! As a new owner of less than a week, I'm a complete newbie. Please feel free to set me straight, anyone, if I'm giving bad advice.

Good luck!

I do get a $100 bucks to spend tomorrow. BUT I can only spend around $30 to $50 on fish.

There's some pretty cheap heaters. How big is the tank and I'll see what I can find real quick.

An Elite brand heater, which has a life time warranty and an internal thermostat that will heat the water to the temperature you select, is just under $20 on Amazon. I have one for my 5 gallon. It is the best heater I've seen.

Er, is there a Petco or Petsmart near you? I bought my Hydor on the internet, best brand IMO. I heard you can find it in Petco, not sure. Also check your local fish stores. I have one near me, too bad I'm near D.C. though.
