That is a very unique suggestion and I appreciate it! Thanks Jones!
I have the air running at 80, so the temperature inside my tank is about 78 degrees. Looks good, whew! Unfortunately I lost some fish in the process.
I also went to my local LFS and purchased an air pump enough for 80 gallons. It is rather loud and powerful and it makes the whole tank look as if it is in a blizzard of air bubbles. My fish all moved to the opposite side of the tank and would occasionally venture over toward the source of the bubbles. It seemed like too much. So, since necessity (and lack of funds) is the mother of improvising, I took the air pump out of a one gallon betta kit I had purchased about 3 years ago. I got some 6' air tubing and hooked it up to a decoration with an air stone. It looks great, is quiet and there is certainly a very decent amount of bubbles issuing forth from it. Too bad I hadn't tried this before I purchased and assembled my new $20+ air pump.
Anything else I might be missing?
