I have 3, 3 gallon totes at this time. I bought heaters from Walmart and only one of them works. It stays around 77, and it's summer. I have a constant film on the water which I "cup" off daily. I change out 1 gallon every other day.
I have choices. I can either buy two new heaters and perhaps 3 TOM filters for the totes I have. Or I can buy a 10 gal and divide 3 ways. If so, I would need to buy only one heater and one filter. If I do this, what kind of filter is best and where do you put it in your divided tank? Does one section get the heater and one the filter and nothing in the third? Forgive my ignorance.
OR>>>>>could I put two TOM's, one on each end? So many possibilities.
So, other than the cost...is it healthier to keep my Betta's separated in totes? Do you think the filters would help with the film? I HAVE read the long post about the film and I honestly don't think there is any one answer.
I understand that ALL of the questions have been addressed in previous posts. There are just so many differing opinions to consider. I am most confused....as always.
