Mini heaters can be found on eBay--I just purchased a couple Thermal Mini 6" Compact Heater 25watt from an eBay store, Aquarium and Pond Store. I haven't received it yet, so I can't tell you if it's any good, but I did some research on-line and it looks like a good one, plus even with shipping, it was a good deal. I wanted a small heater for a desk tank for a future betta and for a QT
tank. I hope this helps.
We are in a cold snap locally, even had a blizzard! Most small heater under 50 watts were snaped up by surprised and deserate fish owners.
The Thermal is great!
That is the one that is in all our minitanks! It doesn't allow much variance once you stablize the temp. It stays at a solid temp, all the fish that have one are enjoying a comfy 80-82(the tank light can make a temporary variance). I drove out of town today to a town 30 miles away and bought some(all they had). E-bay type shipments can take too long and possibly get damaged in transit. I want to visually inspect it because the package come open easily causing it to drop.
I'm afraid to ask, but...I need to know...what was your son doing with sandlewood oil and your daughter's fishtank?!
He was using it like cologne (bleh!) and had snuck in her room and played around with the decorations. Since he had it head to toe, he tainted the water....
I could smell it and see an oily film. I asked had he messeed with it or put anything in it. "no" Then admittance to moving something inside.
~sigh~ Needless to say sister is still mad, had banished him from using her computer (ouch-that is major for him) and caling him a "fishkiller".
Hopefully the battle dies down tomorrow.
I still have my gouramis and my new female betta, but they are not as interactive. And they don't know 7 tricks that are performed sans food.
uhwah, now I am sad again. I didn't even think I liked it!
