Well if you can find a 10 gallon for a decent price,I would do that and possibly split it. As for getting bettas in the US,I dunno lol. As far as I know,petsmart does carry the visitherm heaters in store. I got mine at a lfs though,way cheaper.
Last I checked on the baby pandas,two of the babies are coming out. All the adults seem fine,I hope. Dunno if the very young babies will make it or not,but we shall see!! Hopefully everyone survives my being away for almost a week. Also hope mom doesnt overfeed them,heh.
thanks for asking!!
