Okay I am so confused...
I have read through posts trying to find an answer and I just cannot find the right thing. It's now past midnight, so I am just going to post my question so I can go to bed. :) ha!
I'm about to have a 2.5g tank for my new betta Bubbles. I ordered it online and just waiting for it to arrive. He currently is living in a 1g that I bought before doing research and now regret buying. I don't have a ton of room in my apartment for a nice big tank that I would love to give him...so I feel a 2.5g will work and Bubbles will have a lot of room to swim about.
I need to get a heater..it's a must. Can anybody recommend a heater for a 2.5g tank? I'm new to the fish world, so I am not 100% sure how heater work. Do I leave them on all the time? Do they have a dial to where I can set the temp at? Is there a chance the water can get too hot? I don't want to boil Bubbles by any means, just want to give him that nice tropical water he wants and deserves.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
