I think I'll just stick with the marineland heater I have. I know the water's a bit on the cool side, but I don't really feel comfortable risking a new heater just yet. I don't know if I'll get another betta, but I have the tank set up with conditioned water and the marineland heater just in case. But, if I do I'll get new gravel, too. The tank's currently bare. No gravel, no decorations, just water, a heater, and a thermometer. I had some glass caves that I liked in that tank. Do you think any decor from the tank is safe to use? And should I get rid of the filter, or do you think the filter's still safe?
Out of my two bettas, he really was the favorite child. I think Arcturus is more handsome, but just this weekend I was bragging to everyone who would listen that Severus was eating from my hand and learning to jump for food.
I'm also a little unhappy about the idea of giving Petsmart more money, since Severus was killed by a faulty product their company produced. But the Petco nearby is terrible and Petland is even worse. Petsmart's the only place nearby that ever has bettas that aren't in terrible condition.
