I just got a betta fish a few days ago and have been keeping him on a heating pad to make sure he doesn’t get too cold. However, I think someone may have bumped the control accidentally, heating my poor fish to about 10 degrees higher than the bowl have been before. I immediately took the bowl off the pad to let it cool to the previous . Since then, the temperature has been constant, but my fish hasn’t recovered. I feel so terribly about this. He’s gotten very lethargic, and now he stays at the top of the bowl, blowing bubble after bubble. Is there anything I can do?
Thanks for your site; hope your fish are all doing well!

Bettas are a tropical fish, requiring a water temperature between 75-82ºF. With small aquariums, this water temperature can often be accomplished by positioning the aquarium under a desk lamp. In cooler homes/workplaces, a BettaTherm heating pad can be placed under small bowls to increase water temperature or the Mini Heater 10W can be submerged in the bowl or tank to increase the water temperature. The Mini Heater is a great choice for classroom or work Bettas because they turn on and off automatically to maintain a consistent water temperature (especially important if the building’s heat is off for the weekend). Having an aquarium light on for several hours each day can promote algae growth. However, aim to maintain an approximate 12-hour photoperiod using natural lighting, house lighting, or a nearby lamp, turning lights off at night to simulate a day and night cycle.

A: Thanks for writing in and congratulations on your first Betta fish. Small fish bowls can be pretty difficult to maintain a stable, warm . As you mentioned, the best way to keep the temperature stable is to increase the water volume, which will slow the rate that the temperature fluctuates. In the meantime I recommend placing the bowl in a warm location away from drafts. I have heard some people keep their bowls on top of the refrigerator or in the bathroom. Unfortunately there are no aquarium made for bowls as small as one gallon and placing small bowls on a reptile mat or heating pad can quickly cause the heat to raise to unsafe levels. If you can move him to a larger container between 2 and 5 gallons then you open up other options like a .
