    I just bought the Hydor Theo heater and I’m having trouble deciding where to place it🤔 I’m in between two spots right now, in the back corner kind of by the filter outflow (where it is located in the photos below) and in the center of the back of the tank where his old heater was, right next to...

    hey!! I am looking into buying a new heater for my 5.5gal tank. I have made a post about this before, but am wondering if anyone has used the Cobalt Aquatics Flat Neo-Therm heater. Cobalt Aquatics Flat Neo-Therm Heater with Adjustable Thermostat (Fully-Submersible, Shatterproof Design) from...

    After about 2 days of research / reading every review I can find for various heaters. I recently purchased the 50w Eheim heater for my 6 gallon tank. I used to use 25w Hydors (3), all three malfunctioned by overheating the tank (I feel very fortunate not to have lost a fish from this and have...

    Hello! I am currently keeping my betta in a 3 gallon (Will be upgrading within the next few months) And I am using an 7.5 Watt Aqueon Aquatic Flat Heater. I am also using a basic $1 temperature strip on the outside of the tank. A few hours ago it read 78 Degrees F but now its climbing to 82...

    Hello! I just now noticed that there is a problem with my aquariums temp. Aquarium is 6gal. Heater is Tetra Tec HT25 (meant for 2,6gal - 6,6gal). Heater is working, it is warm(currently set to 28°C or 82°F), aquarium is barely at 23°C or 73°F. It has been at that temp for last few days atleast...

    my betta gets really aggressive with his water heater. I first put it in there in the summer to keep the temperature consistent and noticed he was nibbling and ripping off tiny chunks so I took it out. Now that it’s winter I put it back in but I think he’s getting sick from attacking and...

    Hi everyone! I have gotten one suggestion for a heater already, but I'd love some more to look into :) I currently have this one Top Fin® Betta Aquarium Heater | fish Heaters | PetSmart and it works, it just is kinda difficult to keep consistent, plus I just switched thermometers and it is...

    I installed my heater earlier and I have two thermometers (just in case) in a 10g tank with Toby the Koi Betta. I am using a 50w heater set at 78 and the thermometers are saying the temp of my room (66-68). The heater has been in for about 30 minutes and nothing has changed, does anybody know if...

    So I made the 2 hour journey to the nearest pet store to get everything to set up my 10 gallon tank. And I did get everything except suction cups for my heater.... Is there any alternative?? Tape? I have no idea but I have a betta in a fishbowl waiting for me to get my tank set up and I just...

    Hi all, I bought a 50 watt Aqueon Heater for my 5 gallon aquarium since heater options were limited. I opened the box and there was no instructions, so what I did was, put the heater in the water (without it plugged in) and let it sit in the water for 25 minutes, I than plugged it in but the...

    So good news, I finally upgraded to a 5.5 gallon tank for my betta! Bad news is I think I need to replace my heater. Previously my betta was in a 3 gal tank and the heater worked beautifully on it, consistently kept the temp at 80. Loved it. However with the new tank, it only hovers around...

    So I plan on dividing my 25 gallon tank x3 and read on here that I should get a filter and heater for each section that is divided, Would 3 CAF-10's & 2 Aqueon mini aquarium heaters work(I already have a extra heater) ?

    Hi BettaFish.com I am a 1 week old aquarist who just got his first tank setup, a 3 gallon tetra half moon with a filter for my Betta fish, but I want to get him a heater. This was the one I wanted (below) but the lady at the store wouldn't sell it to me saying it will melt my plastic tank. Any...

    Hi, earlier this week I got a betta. I have him in a 3 gallon with an air filter and heater. After a day of using the heater I noticed the tank was at 85. But without the heater his tank went back down to 70. I'm just very concerned about him adjusting to the water temps. If anybody has any...

    Hi. I'm looking for a filter, heater, and aerator for a 10 gallon tank. I can trade for a 6x9" pen & ink drawing of your betta with his or her name in this style:

    Hi, I have two male betta fish, I keep them in separate square stackable tanks. Am I required to put them in a 2.5 gallon tank and do they have to have heaters? My bettas are happy and healthy. They make bubbles in their tanks, and I only feed them once a day 3 pellets and a tiny bit of dried...

    I'm really worried about my two boy Bettas.They're both inside a 10 gallon divided tank. They didn't have a heater for a few weeks and the water was a constant 70 degrees F Since I had a heater, I wanted to add it in since I read they need a temperature of 78Degrees. I added it in, waited 30...

    well, I waited 2 weeks for this 50 watt ViaAqua heater to arrive and I read the manual. Everything sounds fine until it says it requires a GFCI outlet only.. I think this outlet keeps it from overheating? It's an adjustable heater, so if I kept it at betta temp, how can it overheat? My previous...
  19. Planted Betta Tanks
    Well hello. Recently my betta fish died :( And I just determined that it was probably because he most likely got scratched on his plastic plants then got a bacterial infection or something. So after chucking out those lovely little killers plus my crappy fickle water tester I decided that I...

    I've recently purchased a new 3 gal tank and this is the first time my betta has been in one. I was wondering if there were any automatic heaters that changes the heating temperature depending on the room temperature. If you know anything about that, please let me know!
