Fluval Edge & EBI
I'm looking at getting one of these. Wondering what kinds of fish & live plants I can safely keep in them without a heater. Not looking to do goldfish or betta.
Also, anyone know who has the best price on the EBI?
However, if you're going to spend money on one, I would suggest investing a few extra dollars in a heater.
Your plants will flourish better in warmer water and most freshwater fish need a heater to keep temperatures from fluctuating. Fluctuating temps make for stressed fish and stressed fish are no good.
Some would argue that even goldfish and betta tanks need a heater.
Depending on the size tank you are going to do, you can find a relatively cheap heater for it. I have a 10g planted tank and use a heater I got from walmart that only set me back $15 dollars. Which, in comparison to an expensive tank like Fluval Edge, it's nothing. It's been running strong for nearly a year now with no problems.
I'm sure if you reeeeeallllly wanted to go no heater, someone else will come along and help you out. But from my personal experience, plants and fish live better with a heater.
you also have to remember that the fluval edges are a fairly small aquarium.. 6 gallons I believe... that will also dictate what will work best...
