Good afternoon everyone,

My Aulonocara baenschi just had fry this afternoon and I had a question about the heater I have in the 5 gallon tank.

The heater I am currently using is a Freesea FS-28 heater, which was the only one I had lying around as I was trying to throw this tank together before the fry hatched.

My concern are the openings at the sides could easily allow the fry to swim in and access the heating element.

1) Should I be concerned about this heater and the fish having easy access and
2) if so, what heater would be best used for fry in this aquarium ? The aquarium is 5.5 gallons (16 x 10 x 8)

Thanks for any advice,
