I was thinking about using this one gallon tank that I have as a hospital tank-- can you put a 7.5 watt heater in a one gallon tank?
Yes, it is a mini-bow 2.5 and I got it at walmart for MUCH cheaper than Petco/Petsmart offer it. It comes with the whisper 10I filter, but as I said elsewhere I thought it was too bulky for the small tank so I went back and got the 3I (which needed the gang valve b/c it has no regulator of it's own).
We actually have 2 of them right now, but the other is on my old man's desk and he won't let me put another betta in it lol
Nate is still raggedy but doing okay. He has been in an uncycled tank so I am now using Bio-spira to cycle the little tank for him so he is going through a bit of a less than perfect stage this week but he is holding his own and is HUNGRY as a little shark. He has graduated to getting about 3 or 4 of the Atison's Betta Pro pellets (smaller than this . for those of you who have not seen them) with his daphnia and he is feeling deprived but we are taking it slow. But overall, I think he is healthy just looks awful.
