Hello, I just got a heater for my betta, we just came back from the states it's 1:41AM here, so I hope at least someone is awake
so the heater I bought is a;
"Tetra Submerisble Heater"
- No adjusting necessary
- Easy to hide
- 2-year warranty
For 2 - 15 gallon aquariums
The back says; "Eletronic thermostat automatically maintains water tempature at 78+2°F
No adjustments are necessary. The thermostat also pervents overheating, extending heater life. Strong borosilicate glass is heat and shock resistant, indicator light lets you know when the water is being heated (red light) silicon carbide crystals imrpove heat distribution & transfer.
The "Instructions" tell me to give it 24 hours before placing the fish, but I had my betta in the tank for months now, I don't want to remove him espiceally at this time is this heater trustable? If I leave it on while I am sleeping will it heat the water and keep it safe for my betta without overheating..etc? Or anything ;l
It says it heats to 76°F to 80°F
In the tips it tells me to use an aquarium hood or cover and keep it close to prevent excessive heat loss, should I leave my hood on? Or should I leave it once just to make sure?
And I just plugged in my heater and put it to the side (not horozontially)
So do you guys thing it's safe? I just don't want to wake up in the morning and see my baby dead ;( because of a heater! Thanks I will be picking up a thermonter whenever I can.
