A good heater is an essential component of any Betta fish tank setup, and these five heaters can help you create an ideal environment for your Betta without breaking the bank.
Whether you have a large tank with dividers or a small Betta tank with just one fish, there’s a heater on this list that will work for you.
What kind of heater should I get for my Betta?
The heater you use for your Betta tank ultimately depends on how big your tank is.
Since most people keep Betta fish in tanks smaller than 5 gallons we recommend the Fluval Marina Mini Submersible Heater for Aquarium
Why is my Betta fish hanging out by the heater?
Betta fish are tropical and like temperatures between 78-80 degrees.
If your Betta is hanging around your heater it might be too cold. Check your thermometer to ensure your temperature is set to the right temperature.
How can I heat my Betta tank without a heater?
If you don’t have a heater here are a few things you can do to keep your tank warm;
- Place it next to a heat source
- Place it in the sunlight (watch out for algae)
- Leave the light on longer
- Wrap it with a blanket or towel
