I didn't want to start a completely new thread because it's pointless since this way you guys could see the progress I made. I know it's been a few months, I've been a little busy. But just today, after spending all that time in his .9 gallon marina cubus (closet), he's finally moved into his 2.5 gallon top fin tank (bachelor). Ammenities include heat, more space, hiding places, fine black and blue gravel floor, o and did I mention heat?
Yes I finally decided to get him what he needs and deserves. I guess it could be a christmas/new years present
The heater is a Aqueon 10 w mini heater. They didn't have the thermometer I wanted so I will have to pick one up elsewhere tomorrow before work, and then put it in after work. But it's been working so far and he's swimming in the warmest water he's ever been swimming in. The heater took a while to heat the water so I believe it was gradual enough for Lyle.
When I first put him in he was flashing his gills, curiously swimming around and through the ornament. He appears to be happy with his new space.
I was wondering if you guys leave the heater on all the time, through the night? When I get my thermometer I guess this will answer itself as I don't want the water to go above 80....lol.
I was thinking of getting some ghost fish/cloud minnow for the .9 gallon. Don't know yet. Something so that it's not sitting around. Anyways, here's some pictures.
