So, I have decided at this time I cannot manage my big 55g with all the dividers and bettas constantly getting into each others sections and the hassle of having to clean it which is really difficult when you only have a manual siphon, a bucket and can't get the siphon to pour water back INTO the tank, so you have to manually pour water in yourself.
But I cannot BEAR to give up my fish, I am too attached to them (I was thinking about it, but I cried cus I loved them too much) and so I am just going to downsize again. I know I had a smaller set up before I upgraded, but unfortunately I made an oops with this 55g tank. My poor Lyre is shredded from fin to fin and the others have a few rips too (except Speedbump and the fish that live in his section are okay).
the dividers move when I pour water into the tanks and that is how everyone keeps getting hurt. I just can't take the stress anymore!
Speedbump and his friends are getting a nice 10g.
And I am going to try to get the 4 others a 2.5g each.
It will be a lot easier with h2o changes for me and everyone will be safe from everyone else.
so my Question:
I have a 5.66 Liter (in gallons I believe it is rounded close to 1.5 gallons?)
and for now my shredded boy Lyre is occupying it, and most likely will stay in it for monetary convenience (I am broke and whatever I get my my tank and other stuff I am going to be using to set up the smaller tanks and whatever I have from what I a using right now I am going to use that too.)
so how do I heat it? I believe that our house's constant temp. right now with air conditioning is around 74 degrees, is there a small light or something that can be used with the KK to raise the water temp several degrees. Any ideas??
Lyre is up in the loft right now since during summer it is the hottest room in the house and I haven't checked the h2o temp. yet, but I will get my digital probe thermometer and check it soon.
oh! oops, I guess I have 2 Questions:
How do you all heat your 2.5g's again? What do you think is the best and cheapest way to do it?
