| || | :( broke my heater and I can't get another one for another 5 days..
As the title says, I broke my heater. I accidentally plugged it in with my tank only half full (changing out the aqua scape..) and suddenly it started sizzling and then broken in half. It was a shatter proof one, so there's no glass pieces in the tank or anything BUT I cannot afford another heater until Friday! I'm scared for my fish now.
The only other heater I have is a 50 watt heater for up to a 10 gal tank, I've got a 28 gallon tank with a sponge filter.. plus, the heater hold the temp at 78 (not adjustable) and I've got blue rams in there that will not appreciate the lower temps! I'm scared for my fish.. is there anything else I can do? The house is kept at 75-76 so at least the water shouldn't be getting too cold.. but I don't know what else to do to keep the tank warm other than turn up the heat in my house and it's just too warm to do that!
I'm going to try to get a heater sooner, but I just don't see that happening.
