Larger plastic tote a 300 watts heater and daily water is better than what she has now. You will have to stay ahead of ...
It's not clear, though. Is that okay? Probably around 25 gallons. The heater is probably going to make it too warm for her. I'll fill it and see what it does overnight without a heater and my thermometer in it. Posted via Mobile Device
It's fine, The heater will shut off at a preset point (temperature) regardless if it's a 100 watts or 300 watts heater, the only time wattage come in to play is with the difference between ambient room temperature and aquarium temperature. It take's more wattage to rise a tank by say 40*F than to rise one 10*F but in either case XX*F would be the shut off point.
I hope I didn't make that to confusing.
These small tanks are ONLY temporary. He will be going in my 75 gallon should he pull through. It'll be set up in two-three weeks then it just has to cycle. He should be doing better at that point and not risk contaminating my 75. Maybe someday he can have goldfish friends but for now, he's alone. Posted via Mobile Device
I think its really great that you're saving this fish. I love fish as much as anybody, and love to hear about people like you wh go above and beyond to help fish. Thank you.
Rickey knows EVERTHING about goldfish, you're in the best hands possible! Have you seen his fish houses? Yeah, that's houses, with an "s". He has more than one fish house. Check out his pics and videos ,they are really cool!
I managed to get my 20 gallon (I need to measure, maybe 29) in the stand of the 75 so my hubby won't freak out that there's another "huge" tank in the kitchen. I'll leave the doors on the stand open for light for him or her. I figure the poor thing will like muted light better right now anyways. I'm going to run the filter with no sponge, just carbon because not only did I throw it in the 10 gallon for seed media for the 75 but the tank won't cycle with large daily WCs anyways.
I also have the heater in there but I have a question; why am I heating a Goldie tank? I've kept them before and never heated. My kitchen stays warmish (room temp water is 73F) because the heater in my 10 gallon is finicky. Posted via Mobile Device
