    I don't think you can really heat those...You need a hot room for those, like a fish room heated to 73+.....Could you get a bigger jar or a bucket or something? The mini heater should work in that...

    I'm not sure on her. The weak swimmer worries me. She gets food and everything, and no one is picking on her, so idk. She goes in this cycle, rest on gravel, swim, rest on gravle, swim, etc.

    Simplified Version ~
    Some say 5W per gallon - Others day 10W per gallon
    eg. 10 Gallon - 5WPG-50W 10WPG-100W
    IME 10WPG is better.
    Hopefully I actually made sense.

    Yeah, I'm not sure. It is really strange. I pick up all of the messed up fish. My betta has deformed rays, and one of my platies is a really weak swimmer. lol

    Well, there is a bit of a debate on whether it is 5 or 10 watts per gallon. I found that when I had a 50W in my 10 gallon it wasn't heating sufficently, but my 100W has been, I say 10W per gallon. Others will argue that it's 5, so it's up to you. I use 50W in my 50 gallons. So, either 100 or 200. (sorry if that made no sense, I tried! lol)

    Thanks! Fin rot dude is good, he doesn't have it at the moment. I think maybe it's just a birth defect. It has been up and running since 2011 Boxing Day. I didn't cycle it then, but I think by around 11 months it should be good. xD I'm actually not that experienced, that 10 Gallon in December is actually my first tank, followed by a 5 Gallon to house that aggressive guppy (it was moved back to the 10 after some time on his own, then I added a betta since the guppies were staying civil, then it got aggressive again, so back to the LPS he went), then a KK to house some platy fry, then a 5.5 gallon to house the deformed fry I kept. lol

    Yeah, with oscars isn't it double filtration? xD
    Culling is a hard thing to do. I got the 5 guppies in December, one died in May, that one was euthanized in June, I had to give another back to the pet store in July because it was too aggressive, and one got a bid belly over a day or two then died in early October. Just one left, the runt, with recurring fin rot. lol I got the other four first, and went back to the store to get him, as the only other tankmate for him was a single bronze cory. :(
