Anyone have experience of the Fish R Fun Round Deco fish tank? Is it possible to add a heater? I want a Betta and am looking for a tank.

Hi,

I've never had experience with this tank and I'm not sure if a heater will fit, however there Is a heater available for the bio orb (which ive had experience with keeping tropicals in here and is a curved tank.)

biOrb Heater Pack biOrb Heater Pack: Amazon.co.uk: Pet Supplies

Hope this helps,
Ethan

Why don't you message the seller and ask?

Are you getting the 20l? If so it will likely have more room for a heater than the 10l.

Is this for a betta? If so I recommend getting the 20l anyway because although the 10l has the minimum amount of litres recommended, bigger is always better.

Yes, I'd get the 20L. I have messaged the seller, but they are currently away, so am looking for other opinions in the meantime

Options for a heater or for another tank?

On whether the tank will take a heater. I have another tank in mind, but I like this one better.

There's plenty of minI heaters that will fit into that but a couple questions.. why buy an expensive fish bowl? That's insanely expensive for 10/20L you could buy a much nicer setup with that amount of money.

Depends where you are. In the US I dare say you can, but here in the UK, it's hard to find a nice tank and setup for less..

Hmm tempting! I just like the unusual design I guess.. I was looking at the fluval chi, but someone said people had problems with the filter..

The fluval chI is a solid aquarium. The filter is very sound. It does not come with a heater but it does look nice.

IMO those "stylish" aquariums are expensive for no reason. I build my own so I can't justify the money when I could build multiple identical aquariums for the price.

Good to know it's a solid tank. Will reconsider it. I know they probably (well almost certainly) charge extra cos they are "stylish", but I can't help liking them..

Pets at home do a 19l "kids tank" for £26.

Literally just a basic rectangular tank, with lid and filter. (Means light and heater need to be bought separate but you can get them super cheap off eBay).

I know it's not the funky shape you like but, it's cheap (I believe there's also a 24l one).

I'd pick these over the round tanks, but it's personal preference because I like footprint.

You could pick up any small heater and sit it on the flat side behind some plants.

Hmm interesting..

Edit: Done the maths, and it would cost less to get the chI than the basic one at pets at home..

Oh! You're the person that posted about the betta tank!

I posted a pic of mine in that thread... that's the tank I'm talking about here. Standard "kids tank".
It comes with some gravel an **** that I didn't use.

I have two of them for my boys (again, excuse reflection, they look awesome at night when they show up better).
