| || | Heater and Filter questions??
I know I might soung like a... how do you want to say it... Noob? asking this, but do you really need a filter in a 1.5 gallon tank? I have an aeration tube, (you put a little bubble stone in it, which is connected to a piece of tubing, the other end is connected to, duh, the pump), but what is that really doing? I know it's helping with my O2 levels, and allowing my Betta to get more air.
Anyways. As for the heater. I have two questions. What is a heater, that works well, and can be used in a 1.5 gallon tank, that you reccomend, and have used before? Second, is it even okay to use a heater in a 1.5 gallon tank?
I'm sorry for being so naive when it comes to fish care, but I've had two bettas in the past that were healthy, and I never had a fliter or heater on either one of them, and both lived in the same tank. So are they really necessary?
