I'll be getting my betta next week, so I decided to set up and test out his habitat to make sure everything works as planned.
I'm having some major problems with my Hydor 25 watt heater. My tank is about 2.5-3 gal so it should be big enough to heat it.
Ambient water temp is about 70 degrees, so I set it to 83 degrees and plug it in. The light goes on and everything is fine. Until about 5 mins later! The light shuts off and the temperature is unaffected.
Putting it below the minimum line (helped)
Unplugging my fridge from the outlet (doing that now, will check on it after I get back from class)
Am I doing something wrong?
Please help, I need a solution ASAP
