thank you dramaqueen. I don't know how to move threads myself, or I would've. I wanted to delete it, but I couldn't find that either.

I always advocate cycling a tank, even and especially a small one (<5g).

It's also a good idea, in a small setup, to include plants, as many as you can conveniently handle. They help guard against ammonia spikes and other water-quality issues.

Way ahead of ya there Hallyx! I was just curious about the temp. I'm still looking through fish, to pick one out, to put in it. So I have plenty of time for it to cycle. :P

That makes sense, Bahamut. Explains why I couldn't find any of the above. xD

85 should be ok, in fact, some breeders prefer it that high. Just leave the heater in there, it will adjust accordingly. Btw, i was just at the pet store the other day, there are "betta" heaters that looks like a thin disc you just throw in the tank. It's a good alternative for those typical big chunky ones. Btw, some people wake up so early, ZzzzZzz...

Actually, that's the one that was making it so warm. LOL. It's in my 1G hospital tank right now. Keeping it at a nice 80*F. The other tank is keeping itself at 80*F too, from just the filter. o.O

Also, I was only up because I started vomiting out of nowhere. My stomach has been hurting all day, and I'm just feeling icky. :(

I don't think I want the water that high unless I'm trying to breed them at that moment. Besides, I'd like the female to get into warmer waters and go, woah, the water is warmer! Woah, there's a dude. Woah, i've eaten a lot. Woah, I have eggs. (Woah).
