This is the heater I bought for my small tank. It works great, and it is made for small bowls as it has a rounded shape.
I just saw this heater yesterday at PetSmart but was afraid to get it, because I think I read in another post somewhere that this round heater (Zoo Med) cooked their fish. I guess I could try it and keep an eye on the temp to see if it works.
New here. Just getting my ten gallon started. Walter, as my husband named him, was just transferred from a 2 gal, tall vase into this. He has been swimming around like crazy! Seems to have made the transfer safely.
How easy is it to get new-er light fixtures? The tank that I have Lin in right now is probably close to 6 years old, and it only comes with a horrendously weak incandescent. I can't buy them anymore so I have to use a 7 watt microwave bulb >_>...I don't bother plugging it in (it's attached to the lid).
I was just curious as to how easily I could change to maybe LEDs or at least fluorescent, but the lid is maybe...7"x"4"x3" (LxWxH), so I don't have a lot of space....
The brighter lights just makes the tank look sooo much better :C...mine is always dim, old and gloomy looking, XD
