Yes, it is a ten-gallon. But's the only submersible one they had, and living in a rural area I don't have many options. I do have different heaters that I am using and could switch out, but they're old and I kind of want to use the new one.

Well just keep it very low because that heater is very huge for a 10 gallon tank, you dont want to cook the fry

thanks dq.

So here's a little update: I haven't gotten the tank set up yet, and I think I've decided to switch around and use Aqua and Nova as my first choice and Chip and Spitfire as the backup. Chip has torn up his tail a bit and hasn't made a bubblenest in a long time, although he seems happy. I think maybe he's bored because there is no plants or decor in there. Aqua has a big bubblenest, and Nova has made her third small bubblenest. Plus, I think I like the both of them better anyways.
Hopefully I will set up the tank today. And, I think I've decided that it's too hard to keep this many fish in our house. We have wood heat and harsh winters, so if we leave the tanks would literally freeze solid, and I don't know how good my heaters would work in that type of cold. So after I breed, I'll be giving away/maybe selling most of the babies, keeping one or two. I might keep the rest of my fish however long they live or give them away, not sure. Anyways when I move out hopefully it'll be a house with more stable heat.

This is Julius' bubblenest and Aqua's on either side of the divider. I think they've got a competition going.

Yeah, I think Aqua's really ready. And Nova's dropped her eggs before, so I'm anxious to get her bred before she does it this time.
