Well, as you know, I recently got a new boy, but didn't have enough money to buy him a tank. I kept him in the breeding box in my 10 gal because I thought the coming week i would get money...
However, some things have popped up and I don't have the money, and probably won't be getting it...so no tank yet for Felix.
Today I was doing a water change (my tank tested for Nitrates! cycling is almost done
) and put Felix in the small bowl while i cleaned his breeding trap.
Well, he seems to be quite happy in there! There's a little more room than in his breeding box (it's about .5 gal). He's swimming a lot more actively and flaring at me and everything.
Only problem is...I kept him in the 10 gal because the water was heated/filtered. I don't have another heater for his bowl...and the house is 20 degrees (which is about 68 degrees in farenheit, I think). Nice for me but...I can't imagine he'd be happy.
So do you guys have any ideas on how to keep him warm? If not, I guess I'll have to sacrifice on space and put him back in the heated 10 gal again.
Oh btw, don't worry about Felix being stuck in there forever. Like I've already mentioned, come two weeks i'll be going home for Thanksgiving and taking my sister's 5 gal for Felix. I showed her a picture of him and she loves him too and was quite happy to give the tank to me.
