I am a new betta owner and loking for some advice. i bought my betta recently, after i had my tank set up and running. i didnt, however, think about the room temp. in my dorm and of course then rushed to buy a heater. he's a very small fish >1 inch, in a 1.5 gallon tank. the room temp is about 75, and the heater (for a 2 gallon tank) should be here by the end of the week.
In the mean time, what can i do to keep him comfortable? I dont want to stress him out with constant water temp changes, but im alternating putting in fresh conditioned warm water and using microwaved water from his tank to keepp the water warm.
at the most im gone for about 3 or 4 hours at a time. is there anything i can do to keep him from stressing out in the room temp water? will he be ok through the week? thanks in advance for your suggestions.
