I'll find out tomorrow & let you know. I received it today (FAST shipping ) and filled it & tested everything and all seems A-OK. I will be doing an actual set-up tomorrow.

Mine's in airflow and stays around 75 to 82 from the power filter's motor and the lights alone, I'd assume you don't need any kind of heater unless your household is under 60 much of the day.

No, it's called a "Power 5" and is a 12v powered motor in bottom filter kinda like the i2-5 tetra powered filters but smaller, bigger than a whisper.

The cartridge is an enclosed box that receives water into the bottom and filters out on both sides (carbon inside) The only thing it seems to be missing is bio fiber or foam but with betta tanks the bottom rock is almost always enough.

Ok - it's up, it's running and it is SO cute!!!!

Yes, I was able to get my 25w adjustable, submersible heater in there. I had to mount it vertically on the back wall (I normally put them low & horizontal), but it DOES fit. I THINK it's about 9 - 10 inches, but didn't think to measure it - LOL!

The filter is a tad too much for my half moon in there, but I rubber banded a piece of black aquarium sponge to the front of it for a baffle and it's all good. OH - and I put the cartridge aside and instead put a cut down piece of AquaClear cycled sponge in the filter.

Pictures to come EVENTUALLY - LOL!!!!

That looks like an updated version of my Petco Hex. Hopefully yours has upgraded lights because mine where so dim.
