Mr Gumby Posted December 10, 2021 Share Posted December 10, 2021 Just posted this to a UK forum I'm on so apologies in advance to you guys from the US for Celsius and litres and yes I did get the idea from one of @Cory live streams so I doth my cap to you sir. Hi all, just wanted to share this with you as it might help. I'm currently running a little experiment on my 230 where I basically turned my heater off 2 days ago to see if I actually need it at all. So far the minimum temperature I've seen is 23.5 degrees, max 24.8. Full disclosure, I am working from home still so if something looks iffy I can turn it back on in a timely manner. Room stat is set to 20 and heating on from 6am to 10am then 4pm to 11pm. Obviously some of you keep fish that need higher temperatures but a lot of community fish are perfectly happy at 22 and are fine as low as 20. Essentially what I'm saying is do your research and don't panic when your heater dies. Also I will add smaller water volumes will lose temperature faster so maybe don't do this on your smaller tanks Hope that helps some people Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
