My 2.75 gallon "pet keeper" from Petco (picture is slightly cropped). It's not fancy, but Prince loves his flower cave, hammock, and plant for nestling in.

I *heart* these floating mesh caves, and so do my fish...

I have my 4 critter keepers lined up side-by-side. I glanced over, and all four of my guys were in their floating caves, looking out at me.

As soon as they saw me, they did their "Feed me!" dances.

I think 3 of them sleep in the things. (The other one sleeps upside down, in the middle of the tank....)

Ashleylyn, you have the heater I have been considering. How do you find it? Does it actually go to 78f like the box says? Does it hit the maximum temperature and shut off never going above? Does it keep the temperature consistent??

My friend actually gave it to me. I don't have a thermometer on that tank, but everytime I have touched the water, it has felt consistently the same temperature. It turns on and off throughout the day too, so I assume it's working correctly. It's really never felt too hot or cold, I'd say right at 78. My betta (I have my CT male in there now) is quite active and happy in this tank with the heater, so I'd say it's doing its job. :)

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. I will pick up one on the weekend and if it works as well for me as it does for you i will buy two more.

Sorry one more question. Do you know if its the 10 watt one? The box said 10 watt for up to 2.65 gallons but I'm confused because everyone says a 25 watt heater

Thank you! Unfortunately she passed over the summer, but my boy I got last month is very much enjoying the tank (of course after a thorough cleaning lol). As for the size, I'm really not sure and I doubt my friend still has the box as she had a bunch of aquarium supplies in her attic. My tank is 3 gallons though and the water is always warm. I want to say it's a 10watt as the tank she gave me was only a 2.5 gallon. But my room is also always quite warm (I hate the cold haha) so that may make it a bit easier on the heater. I'll hopefully pick up a thermometer in the upcoming week or two, but he's been in that tank for a month or so and swims, darts, flares, attacks his bloodworms like he's out in the wild, etc. :)

Sorry about the little guy and for all the questions. 70 bucks is a lot of money for me to shell out so I'm making sure I get the best bang for my buck and doing my research. Glad the new boy is loving it. Thanks again.

I already posted this in the planted tanks section but I thought it could go here as well. This is Tauro's new 5.5 gal planted kritter keeper he shares with his snail, Gary.
I took the red KK lid off & use a smaller clear plastic lid because I don't like the look of the KK lids (plus I can't find a way to fit my heater/LED light/filter on the tank without cutting the lid, lol)

Both of the KK's I'm using currently. I will have to set up one more for my fiance's male who can't handle the 2.5 he's in as soon as I find the rest of my lids...

the one with sand is currently waiting for its inhabitant, a baby HMPK with SBD. The tacky tank with the brick has my yellow rescue, Anu in it.
