Tank Too Cold?


Recommended Posts

Howdy all,

In setting up my tank, I've neglected the temperature of the water so I purchased a thermometer. The tank reading has been between 18-20 degrees celsius (65F), is this too low? If not, I suspect my tank will get colder in the upcomming winter. Should I purchase a heater as a precaution?

It wont hurt them, if it stays like that, but I like to keep my tanks at 70, But 65 won't hurt and fish with wens cooler temps promote more fatty tissue growth such as wens. But for the winter it depends on what your house temperatures are. Heaters are inexpensive and cheap to run overalll I think you should get a heater I find my fish do the best at 70 but it's your call.
