Is that the problem? There isn't a hole, but the heater cord keeps it from closing.. too much sauna?? I have propped the lid open now about a half inch..

Yeah keep it open a bit, or even off. 75 isn't all that cold, just have the lid either propped open more than just by the cord or keep it off.

yikes! I know those containers... you neede to allow air circulation, especially since bettas prefer having that air Glass does keep heat in better, although it explains why the temperature changes drastically from lid on to lid off... glass does that - especially in bowls or containers. Or, so I found.

Yes they can I had one tank, a 1 gallon with a lid. The lid had a handle, but I flipped it over so the handle propped the lid up :) Never had him jump out! And Finicky loved to jump. And make me buy 4 different kinds of food

Create a make-shift lid with plastic wrap and poked holes. Then you can just make a bigger hold for the heater cord to pass through. It will also create a natural sauna in which the air will be humidified which is healthy for their labyrinth organ. The plastic wrap will also allow for a natural, controlled gas exchange with the outside atmosphere.

I use plastic wrap for breeding and spawning, and raising fry =D humidity is great for them.

Maine's and Madame spawned real well, and 3 (of course the biggest) survived :/ another spawn did about the same, and it's not that bad finding bettas homes here xD

they were not great, but I'm in a better situation now to try again xD I've got 2 gals with some nice VT finnage (yeah, I know, VT is too common), and 2 males to choose from. One of which I found is a marble o_O no longer yellow... the other is a deep red. :) This time from a completely different store, and Big Red was shipped. I love him :3 Him, the other male, and the two females are being conditioned. This time... I'll be doing things slightly different.

Thanks for the help and suggestions. It took me a while to figure out what to prop the lid open with that wouldn't kill him if it fell in. Finally, i came upon a wooden spoon. My lid is propped up and the temp is staying at 78. I may play with it a little and see if i can get it to stay at 80. Thanks again.
