6 inches! Now that's MUCH better.

So have you figured out how we could add a heater and a filter?

The "self cleaning" betta tank. Concept is great, but the space....not so much.

Yeah that's it, maybe he could get that concept into is wall tank, and there's a heat pad on the back of the tank that keeps it right at 80 degrees, that's why there's a cord going to the tank in the picture

I've never used aquarium heat pads before. Do they really work? Would it keep a tank with these dimentions a uniform temp, or would it have hot and cold spots?

Also, a pad would have to be able to be placed vertally instead of its normal horozontal position. How could that be accomidated?

You'd have to ask BetterBettas about that, but somehow he got it to work.

That is kind of neat. Kind of cheesy too. But that method wouldnt work on this design because of the upsidedown effect it has.

But. I could easily add a valve at very bottom for draining and one at top for filling.

If you wanted to use their design on your current tank, You could drill a hole in the side at your desired water level. run a tube from the bottom of the tank, out of the hole, and use silicone to seal up where the tube goes through.

It is all trial and error. The small stick on reptile heat pad worked great for this tank. I detect no noticable hot spots with the thermometor. Not to say spots couldn't vary a couple degrees.

Vertical or horizontal wont make a difference.

I meant on a wall instead of under a tank. But good to know that it works!

I would like to do the tube thing for easier water changes but I don't trust myself or anyone in my family to drill a hole in the glass tank.
