    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  

    Hope this helps,

    Unfortunately, that tank is wayyy out of my price zone..

    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.
  5. IniNew MemberMember

    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

    Sorry, I ment the heater might fit the tank you wanted to get

    However I'm not sure about sizes ect..

  7. IniNew MemberMember

    Ah, ok! I'll take a look.

    Options for a heater or for another tank?
  9. IniNew MemberMember

    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.
  11. IniNew MemberMember

    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..
  12. Tiny_TanganyikansWell Known MemberMember

    I can find you several if you like
  13. IniNew MemberMember

    Yes please!

    25L comes with filter lights and heater cheaper than that bowl.

    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..
  16. Tiny_TanganyikansWell Known MemberMember

    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.
  19. IniNew MemberMember

    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 crap 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).
