I have a 75 gallon aquarium that is heated through a oase biomaster canister filter. I was also considering using two 150 watt heaters on each side of the aquarium instead. I am wanting to have it where the heaters wont constantly have to run. So the question is a heater that is ran by a canister filter more efficient or is having two heaters inside of the aquarium on opposite ends more efficient?
Here in north TX we just had a temperature swing from 97 to 50 in about three days, and these kinds of swings are typical for the area. admittedly, I forgot this before switching our tank from room temp to tropical stock, and now I'm concerned about keeping the temperature stable throughout the winter months. my husband and I live in an apartment, so improving the insulation for the room the tank is in isn't possible, so what other ways can you insulate an aquarium? tips for power outage or travel would be helpful too.
