I must have a heater. I live in an old apartment building and the insulation is very poor, so it can be in the upper 80s in the summer and as low as 65 in winter. And if the furnace goes out, it gets colder. I can't wait to find me a house!!! ANd I can control my own heat.

Snorkeling is a must for every fish lover!

That's ok, microsoft. It was my mistake for insisting the use the heater.
Philippines. It's in the tropics so heaters are crap. Until I can use it only on emergencies.

Sorry about your fish. I can't imagine that -- even on our hottest days, I'm sure the aquarium is still under 78 degrees F. When I had goldfish, years ago, I would float ice in the tank on warm days. But with the tropical fish, my heaters are on 24/7. (must be nice to live in the tropics, eh?)

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

I live in massachusetts. I have the marineland stealth submersable in all three of my tanks and they are very accurate.
