  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hi, This isn't an immediate emergency, but I have several fish and have been wondering for a while now what the best things for me to do during a mid-winter power outage would be. I live in CT in the winter, so it gets pretty cold, and our house doesn't seem to retain heat terribly well. We...

    I was considering buying a heater for Peewee's 2.5 gallon on ebay, but noticed most of the heaters are from other countries. Would the power plug be the same or differant to one in Australia? I don't want to buy a heater to find out the power plug doesn't fit in :|
