are you talking about this one?:
i bought this one a little over two months ago for my betta (i also have a 2.5 gallon tank), and i thought it looked very sleek, so i wanted to try it out.
so, i brought it home, followed the instructions, then i plugged it in. i waited about 30 minutes, and it didn't even turn on. i decided to unplug it, wait another 30 minutes and then i plugged it back in. waited about an hour, and it didn't even turn on.
i decided to leave it plugged in during the night, and in the morning there was still nothing. the next day, i returned it. i'm thinking maybe i just got a faulty one, so i'm not sure why it didn't work. :/
i've heard this one works wonders, plus it's cheap!:
i plan to buy that one eventually, since i don't need a heater at the moment. my betta's water is a constant 78-80*.
