    Default Heater for 5g?


    0 Not allowed!
    My 5g doesn't have a heater and I'm worried it'll get too cold for the two frogs and betta I plan to put in it. It's currently sitting at 23C (sorry don't know F), but I know as winter sets in, it's bound to get colder. I only keep the room temp at 21 and turn it down to 18 at night.

    What's a good (and preferably inexpensive!) heater to get for it?

    Thanks!

    I have a tetra submersible 50 watt heater that I got from walmart. It keeps the tank at78 degrees. I have it in my 5gal hex and I love it. So far so good.

    They dont have it on walmarts website, but here's a pic of what it looks like.
