So. I just set up a new tank and then realized that the heater I have for it may not work. I have an 8w heater for my 1.7 tank and a 7.5 for my gallon bowl. the bowl heater, if I remember correctly, can head 1-3 gallons, but the packaging of the 8w heater says it can only heat up to 1.5 gallons which makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.
I am really excited about the new tank, but am battling an internal struggle about whether I should put my fish in the 5 gallon tank with the 8w heater and whether he would be happy in there. The temperature of my house is about 70F at the least but probably not more than 75. Summer is coming soon so I almost wonder if I should just go ahead and use it since I probably wont use it much in the summer anyway. What do you think?
