Sea-Monkey Tank

I'm not sure if this goes under this topic or not, but I need some help. I have a little sea-monkey tank, the one that comes with the starter kit and I wanted to know how to use a bigger tank? What would I need to do? What would I use to keep them warm, like would a lamp work?

Not sure what temp they require, but you could use a submersible heater (fluval, marineland etc.)

Ill be honest I havent seen much Sea Monkey activity on here

I assume you would still need a heater. The general rule of thumb (and it can vary) is 3-5 watts of heat per gallon. So if you did a 1g tank, youd really only need 5 watts of heat, however im not sure they make heaters that little. You could try those heating pads that they make for the bottom of the round betta bowls.

Sounds good. Honestly i might spend the little bit extra and get a submersible heater, id bet it works alot better than the little heating pads for bettas
