You may be able to get a 25 watt at walmart. I know they have some with smaller wattages in the store. You could just go pick that up

I think those are the Tetra whispers. I have one of those too.

Whew... I finally confirmed the online order. Here's to hoping that I've made all of the right choices and will be able to keep a betta happy and healthy. There's no backing out of it now... unless I want to have an aquarium running with nothing in it.

As a side note, I've decided to hold off on getting a heater until I could physically go to the pet store and get it (presumably at the same time as I'm actually getting my betta!)

Hee! My tank came with the best accessory: a mommy.

My mom's been keeping fish for 20 years, there's pretty much nothing food/chemical/medicine-wise that she doesn't have in her cabinet under our 55 gallon downstairs. I managed to get my Betta's setup for about 40 bucks, because most of it was supplemented by my mom's supplies.

Of course...there's all that shopping to do for the upgrades.

*salivates* Mmmm...upgrades...

I'll never forget the day my mom looked at her giant Pleco, Rosco, and saw that he couldn't turn around well in her 50 gallon.

Me: So...are you going to give him away? I love Rosco.
Mom: I could do that....or I could get a 99 gallon tank instead.
Me: ...
Mom: Who wants to go to the fish store?

Most definitely. Anytime I have a question about Bianco or his tank, I just have to call downstairs.

"Mooom? Can you show me how to properly administer a salt bath?"

"Mooom? Could you help me change Bianco's water?"

And then she's all, "What saturation would you like? Do you have standing water at hand? Don't forget to check your tank's levels!"

The day mom showed my sister and I how to properly measure water in the test tubes, and then to compare our results against the chemical charts, was like a rite of passage. And that's just one facet of our animal education. We've had instruction in breeding, hatching and nursing birds, maintaining rodents, proper snake and lizard hygiene practices, pilling dogs and cats, and endless cleaning of cages, litter boxes, front yards, wood shavings and food dishes.

I had a very full childhood. ^.^

Lol, that's neat. My dad sort of showed me the fish-keeping ropes... but he hasn't got fish any more. It'll just be me on my lonesome. I've definitely had a very pet-filled childhood as well. I've always loved it. We had a turtle at one time, three guinea pigs, a rabbit, lots of fish, three hermit crabs, three dogs (two still alive and kicking), and two horses.

Being raised like that, you can imagine how impossible it would be for me not to have a pet to love and look after. Thus, the betta who will be accompanying me to college. ^_^

Anywho, I just realized today that I accidentally ordered two 33 oz things of aquarium salt. >_< That'll probably be enough to last me a while.
