Heater Broke!

So, my heater just broke on me. I had an adjustable heater and it does one of two things now: a) doesn't do anything or b) boils my fish. (When I woke up, my 5.5g was at 34C)

I won't be able to get another one until Sunday at the earliest, because I work from 10 - 5 and then I'm in class from 6 - 10. Is there anything I can do to keep my betta warm until then?

if you have an electric blanket .. you can wrap that around his tank till u get a heater

if you don't you could also use a towel/blanket and put a pocket heat pack in there and keep him warm

or if you don't have either of those you could turn the heat up in ur room using one of those portable room heater things .. or turning the air conditioner on for the house and set the temp to like 80degF

if you have none of those things .. you can move him to a warmer part of the room/house .. and set up a hair dryer on high heat and blow it at the tank from about 1 foot away and wrap him in a blanket ..

if you can't set up a hair dryer then you can always put his tank right behind your computer (if you have a desktop) and the computer's heat coming out of it will keep the tank a little warmer then usual .. but make sure computer dust doesn't get in the tank ..

good luck =)

Thank you! I have the heat cranked up in my bedroom and his tank is sitting at 24C right now. I'll try wrapping my electric blanket around his tank on low and turn it up during the night. :)
