It was sold as a 8 US Gal tank but after I minus the filter area at the back, it holds only around 5 US gal..Mamashack said:Hi Aquapit!
That's a dinky little tank how much does it hold?
No, it's not an Aqua tank..Mamashack said:That's just over 4 UK gallons I think - looks smaller than that somehow. Is it an Aqua tank? I've got one that looks similar tho it's black and approx 30L/7 UK Gall
Same sentiments! *Hi 5!*GuppyGirl20 said:I like the way it's in there because it looks like he can get under the plants if he wants to or be above them.
Tks!DiddleBug said:Nice tank and betta!
Is there a way to naturally down the temp? Like adding a pebble or more plants?? Mine's doesn't even have a heater and it's already that high!Mamashack said:That temp sounds a bit high to me - it's on the upper limit for a betta so no room for ambient heating influence on the tank temp. I keep mine at 27-28°, but whatever you do don't turn it down suddenly if that's what you decide to do. If you do, do it gradually 1° at a time. They should ideally be somewhere between 26° and 30°C
Tks for the suggestions! So far, 31 is the highest..Mamashack said:If that's the highest it ever gets then I suppose it's ok but if it's likely to get higher then you might have to think of ways to cool it down like making sure it's not near another heat source such as a window. Could you direct a fan on it?
If it's not going to get any warmer I wouldn't worry too much but if it does get warmer then you may also have to add an air bar or something as I believe O2 may be reduced the warmer it gets - not sure about that tbh but hopefully someone with more experience can comment on that.
