i had all mine in critter keepers before the big tanks came along. worked a treat.

2.6g with heaters, small filters for aeration and loads of deco incl backgrounds. water changes twice a week 1x 100% and 1x 50%. worked a treat for me. wouldn't go smaller than 2.5g though



beware though; this set-up swallows electricy!

^^^ well it was amazing apart from all the cables and water changes.... thats why i said id get the divider BUT critter keepers are safer because you can individually treat sick fish...

now, i had 8 cables for just 4 fish. so it was quite a mess.
i wouldnt recommend filters in KC anymore. but heaters defo.

Your setup looks incredible, im jealous lol. I wanted a filter for my 2.4 gall but didnt see the point since its small and I'm OCD with my water changes, I do have a the Hydor mini heater and for some reason it will not go up past 65, the heater has been in the tank about 12 hours.

I don't depend on Hydor heaters at all. They're the kind of heaters that only keep it +3F (or so) above room temperature.

What type of mini heater do you suggest? I saw the hydor get reccommended on here so ordered it online. My betta seems to be fine, hes swimming around a lot more than he was in the 12 gall but obviously the water isnt warm enough for him.

The Tetra Whisper Heater 2-15 seems to work fine for smaller-tanks. The only place I've seen them available at was Walmart.
