What is the consensus about using a heater (for just a few days) in a rubbermaid container or 5 gallon bucket? I'm a little concerned about melting or releasing toxins into the water. Should I be?
It's not for QT. I have a QT tank. It's for a move. But thanks for the tip.Dave125g said:As long as there's water circulation, and the heater is not touching the container you should be fine. Honestly a rubber made container ( even the clear) make horrible QT or treatment tanks. Its hard to get a good look at your fish to accuratly gage there health. A 10 gallon tank is 12 bucks at Walmart.
Thanks! I have purchased several battery operated ones.Dave125g said:
Ooooo, I'll bet my hubby will agree to get at least one for a holding tank. He can use it on one of the boats later.Jayd976 said:another method is just get a cheap cooler. You can get the battery operated air stone either by small batteries or the better 6 volt units they make for boat holding tanks. I use that incase of power outage last for days and powerful to keep my 90 gallon oxygen levels up when needed.
That's actually a really good idea. I've never thought of that.EmmaBudgie said:
