The big switchover!

I just moved one of my bettas to a 4 gallon heated tank. YAY! I'm letting the heater acclimate like I was told to and so I'll give it 15, 20 minutes then I'll turn it on. Jaden seems to be doing ok in it so far and is exploring his new home. I sure hope he likes it and that the heater does ok. :)

I got a "No Fishing!" sign to put in his tank. lol Another forum member had one hat said "Only cool fish allowed" or something like that but I couldn't find one. The light on the tank was working and now its not. Bummer, but oh well, he seems to like the tank.

move the bulb around alittle and see if it turns on, sometimes when they are off just a bit they wont work. if that doesnt do the trick, look towards the ends of the bulb, if they look black/greyish that usually indicates the bulbs shot or atleast going. even if you replace the bulb and it doesnt work you may need to replace the starter (if your light fixture has one) its a little white cylinder like thing in the light fixture and you can pick one up at a hardware store for a couple bucks.

Onefish, the bulb goes into a white rubber cylinder thing. I tried 2 different lights besides the original one that was in there. I'll keep fooling with it. Thanks.
