Heating related question + mini rant, lol

You have all gotten me so addicted to both bettas and this forum lol, CURSE YOU ALL (with love)

Oh if only my apartment was heavily laden with electrical sockets and table-space, I would adorn my living room with bettas, XD

<end rant>

*coughs* SO uh...onto my question...

Is there anyway to mass-heat a bunch of tanks? Let us hypothetically say I got 2 or 3 critter keepers, is there any way to heat them using one source? Instead of having to buy 10000 heaters?

(I kind of wish that the Hagen Zen "tank" wasn't cruelty (it's 0.5 Gal O_O), otherwise I'd buy loads)

Sigh, what to do about this addiction X_X....

An easy solution would be to buy one large tank and divide it,and thus only need to use one filter/heater/light........but then if your like me you would buy more Bettas to go in your empty critter keeper tanks

I agree, get a 10 gallon and divide it into 3. Only one heater needed!

Keep your home heated to ~85 degrees F, also you could buy multiple heaters and hook them up to one of those power strips.

@Tomsk and Sweeda: Hahah yes I thought of that at first, but I'm not sure if I have any physical space for a 10 gal anywhere convenient... HongBo's 5 Gal is already taking up a 3rd of my desk XD. I theoretically do have space on the desk beside me, but it is facing directly at the window :(... also not to mention my brother (and my wallet) will be mad XD

@Baylee and Scrambles: LOL I don't actually know how warm 85F is in C (I'm guessing 27ish) but my brother and boyfriend will be really pissed because they both dislike heat. I also don't really have control over the heating at our apartment.

@Scrambles: I would love to do that, but my apartment has...fuse issues. I can't run the A/C and turn on too many lights at the same time otherwise all the power goes out. Also heaters here are expensive, the 50 watt I have right now cost me around $30 CAD

Maybe one day when I'm done with school, I can think of something....
