If you can't afford a heater

If money is an issue I'll send you the hydor 7.5 watt heater I was using before I got my awesome stealth. Continental US. I will only send to a po box or a business address. PM me only if your fish needs it and you can't afford one.

Get a nice small heater or your fish will die.

How small is "Really small"? If it's under a 1g it can't be heated.

Go to walmart and pick up a storage bin and a small 2-15g heater. Works like a charm. OH and some plants.

Nah sand and rocks aren't really a "Needed" thing in a small uncycled aquarium. Less mess, less time you spend cleaning!

Your fish isn't necessarily going to DIE without a heater, but it'll go step by step towards that direction... kinda. It's more like: He gets lethargic, and is more susceptible to disease. His immune system weakens. Etc, etc.

Alienbetta ... how in the world would he ever make a nest down there. Make sure it's not simple air bubbles.
