I just tracked it and it's saying it was out for delivery at 7am this morning. I'm sure it's going to be held up until tomorrow. How's your betta doing today??

He was fine the last 2 days but is floating a little tonight. I may start soaking the pellets before feeding them to him and see if that helps.

You said that you "had" a storm so hopefully the storm is now gone & that you're (and your bettas!) staying warm

I just got the daphnia. :) Thank you so much, Kym, for all your help. I'll feed him some tonight for dinner. :)

You could probably heat a 2 gal. with a 25 watt adjustable heater. Just make sure you set it right so it doesn't overheat. I don't like the mini heater pads because they don't have a thermostat so they don't keep a constant temperature unless your house stays the same temperature all the time, and even then they can still over or under heat.

Fast him and then feed him a pea.

If frozen then heat up in microwave then peel it, mash it and then feed him don't worry if it sinks and he doesn't eat right away.

If canned then just peel it and mash it and then feed it to him.

Feed it to him in the morning and then at night and then fast him again for a day.

This helped with my beta before.

Good luck!

A 25 watt adjustable heater would be better than nothing, wouldn't it? If I kept an eye on it?

^^Yes, I don't really think you'd have any problems with it at all. I personally love heaters by Visi-Therm, so I'd get the 25 watt Stealth model if you can find it.
