I finally got the round part from the suction cup through the hole on the heater holder thing. I had to moisten the round part a bit to get it to slide through. Those things are never gonna come apart now. Then I slid the heater unit through the round heater holder thing.
I put the heater in tank. Losing real estate quickly here with the heater, the filter, the plants, and the gravel.
I think I need to larger tank now. I mean, this heater pretty much dominates the back wall of the tank! (2 gallon) It just barely fits diagonally.
I am happy about how the heater seems to be warming up the water relatively quickly. I've got it set to 79°F right now, will give it some time to see what my final water temp ends up.
I had to move George's plant forward. I'm not yet sure he likes the new arrangement. I feel him staring at me, thinking, "Mom! Move it BACK!!!"
Any danger of George getting "singed" if he swims too close to the heater? Or will he learn to ignore it and not swim too close to it?
