anyway good luck and i hope you get them working the way they should...maybe try setting one heater at a lower temperature to the other or something? :)
I'm sure it's not an underheating problem, the highest I've seen it get was 90 accidentally.

I guess, but I have both heaters set for 83 degrees now and the tank is 86-87. I guess I just have to play with them to get the right temperature. Thanks for the help guys.
Edit: And no lights or direct sunlight
