I'm just wondering, what would be the best strategy to raising the temperature if the tank? The temperature is 20C (68F) now, looking at the species mix I have, and what I want to add, I think 25C (77F) would be the safest temp to go up to (I'm not sure the Corydoras paleatus would like higher than that).
How fast should I raise the temperature? Would 1 degree Celsius per day be OK?
One or two degree's daily would be good. Could possibly raise it one or two degree's every 12 hours ,but daily would be my choice.
