If your dog loves it’s food, chances are it’ll eat too much of it and seem hungry all the time.
I see a lot of fat dogs and I get this conversation alot:
Them: Is it OK if I put a little bit of wet food in my dogs dry food?
Me: Why would you put wet food in his dry food?
Them: To get him to eat!
Me: Why? Is he all skinny and losing weight?
Them: No, he looks normal.
Me: Then why would you coax him to eat and go over that normal body weight? If you get him to take food when he is not actually hungry, he is just going to put on weight and wear out his hips and knees earlier.
If I could get my customers to let their dogs eat what they need, and not what they want, I would die a happy man.
Every time I euthanize an old dog because he’s broken down in the hips and back, I think of my own pet’s mortality. So I want to delay putting YOUR dog down as long as I humanely can. And that’s with healthy mouths and low body weights.

Pro Air 60 Aerator is a VERY high output air pump pushing my whole fish room (17+ drops), and I have one at home driving everything there, and I have one as a back up.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
