  2. Sales (misc)+Wanted: Silk Plants, NLS, 5 gallon adjustable heater, glass decor/stones

    Betta Fish Marketplace
    I'd love to look at your silk plants! Thinking about small-medium, purple/blue/green/white or tiny small yellow/multi colored ones. I need a floating silk plant also for my crescent half-circle 10 gallon. NLS food: I only need a tiny amount, so I prefer it in combined shipment. I only own one...
  3. Betta fish tank setup question

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am planning on converting my 20 gallon fish tank into a dual Betta tank with a divider in the middle. I want to have 2,10 gallon sponge filters on each side of the tank. Would I need to have two heaters, one for each side of the tank also? Because I read that the heater should be at water flow...

  6. Heater for a 4-5gal tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello, I am looking for a heater for my 5gal (holds about 4-4.5 gal with all the plants and stuff in there.) The temp currently stays between 78-81F which is a little more fluctuation than I'd like. Plus I think my betta would be happier with a temp of 82F or something similar. And in case he...
  7. heater for 2.5 gallon tank

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi all. Just got my first betta last month. I am a little frustrated with the help and information I have received from my local pet store! So much wrong information which has cost me lots of wasted money. They convinced me that bettas are happiest in 1 gallon or smaller tanks! I originally...

  9. Heater Question

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hey everyone! I'm probably going to feel really blonde asking this (and if the answer is that I don't have something plugged in, even more so XD), but why is it that with my 10 gallon completely full, one heater could keep the temperature at an even 80 degrees, but it takes two heaters (both...
  10. Need Reliable Heater Recommendations

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I am having a horrible run of luck with heaters. 2 Hydros took on condensation (one within 6 months, the other only 2 months) and now my brand new AquaTops are having huge temperature fluctuations (Set at 79, lets it drop to 75 and then doesn't turn off till 84). I had to scrape up the money to...

  13. help with aqueon heater?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    I'm a genius and forgot to unplug my heater when doing a 100% water change! It started sizzling and now there's a part of it that's really hot, like the protective part stopped working. Is there anything I can do, or is Opal doomed to be chilly tonight?

  16. Heaters?

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Well for some weird reason Arizona has gotten pretty cold. It probably will warm back up soon but I should get a few heaters. So.... What heater should I get for my 10 gallon tanks (I have two of them)? I saw one at Petco for 2-10 gallons. Will that be okay? And I have one tank that I don't know...
  17. Recommendations for Heaters, Thermometers and Silk Plants

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Last night I took the heater out of Moony's tank and he's swimming around a lot more. But that could be that he's just settling in better. He's been zipping around the tank all day. The heater I purchased is being returned. I asked a Tetra rep about what size heater I might need for a 1.5...

    Betta Fish Care
    So I got my 10 gallon set up and for the first day and half or so the water was so nice and warm, but when I checked it this morning, I couldn't find Fishie(pretty hard to lose him no plants or anything in there yet) When I found him he has sucked himself as close to his rock as possible! I...
