I'm really new here and I literally JUST made an account.. but this is kinda an emergency for me, really..
I just got my betta yesterday and so far it's in a 1 gallon bowl. It survived last night with no heater but the water seemed really cold! (the fish is kept in my bedroom and it's really cold there, especially at night)
I bought an Aqueon 10 watt mini heater for the bowl.. and I'm scared that if I leave it on tonight, it might overheat the bowl. I left it plugged in for 4 hours and so far it's at 79 degrees-ish.
This isn't an adjustable heater.. and the temp just increases every hour..
I really don't know if I should leave it plugged or unplug it.. especially to tonight all the way to when I come back from school (16 hrs)
My house is literally cold but my room is colder. Idk what I should do.. help? I can't buy an adjustable heater until next weekend. :(
