not attempting to be contrary nor am i attempting to step on anyones feet just demonstrating one way that has worked for our tanks.....

I would simply add that at higher temps, oxygen levels in the tank may make one consider adding an airstone during this form of treatment. At higher temps,less oxygen is available.

I housed my female betta that i use for breeding in a 2.5 gal tank until i was able to get a 10 gal setup for her. She was in it for over a month, no issues, and now I have baby betta's which says a lot I suppose lol.

Honestly a few degree change through the day isn't that bad, as it would do the same in a natural environment. Compared to a heater cooking everything then being unplugged to cool down. The heaters that kick off at certain temps, haven't seen any in a while, however last I saw they weren't that cheap either.

I own lots of lil buggers and tanks so cost is a big thing I look at... I would rather take my time and breed fish so I don't have to buy more. I have people who give me male / female pairs to breed just so I can have some lol.
