Hey I've finally been able to get my 10 gal for SPike and Spud. I haven't been able to purchase the proper heater tho. I have a heater for up to 5 gal. I have read many posts about heat pockets forming in the tank and I want to avoid that as much as possible. But I don't want my bettas in cold water. Would it be okay to use that heater temporarily?? Or should I just wait it out until I can get a better heater?

@nel3: It is probably something in their saliva that makes them stickier than usual so they hold together

Bubble nests are blown with an oral secretion, air bubbles coated with saliva to increase durability.
They make them for different reasons such as quick temperature changes, barometric changes, fluctuations in rainfall, materials in the tank, and presence of other males or females.

thank you myates, im surprised so many are behind the bubbles. my copper dt always surprises me with his nests, covers up to 30% of the water surface in the 2.5g at the most.

the vt in the .5g tank likes to put one under the fake plant i made from a rock, plastic model bits (stem) and silk leaves. other than that he likes to do so under the baffled filter (when he was in the 2.5).

About how much does a 10gal tank weigh when full (sand, decorations & water)? I want to make sure the stand is strong enough before I set this baby up.
