Question Not sure about heaters/filter

I'm going to keep my betta in a 10g tank with two ADFs and a ghost shrimp, but I'm not sure what heater or filter to use. Someone told me the Whisper 10 Power Filter was good, but I'm not sure...

I don't know about filters but I would recommend a Marineland stealth visitherm heater.

Hmm...the reviews on that on Petco.com don't look so good.

Yes I would deffinatley suggest the Whisper Power Filters, theyre great because they have adjustable water flow. Make sure it is their power filter, not one of the in tanks, or an ex model (either of those are not) As far as heating goes, I have a Hydor Theo, great little heaters for sure. I like it because it has actaul numbers on the dial so you can see how much your changing it instead of just a dial that you have to guesstimate on.

Thanks!! Do you know anything about the heater I should use?

Also, at what level should I keep the pH?

For a 10 gallon, I think a 50 watt is what is recomended. PH....I believe should be at 7 or so. Not 100% on that, hopefilly someone who is will chime in

Should I use something to circulate the water, too?
