Cold Basement

Hello, I want to ask.

If you keep your tank in the cold basement around 50F, will the heater be able to keep the tank warm for the fish?

In addition, how much light is enough? I can set the time for 12 hours of light. Do betta need sun light? Will flourescent light good enough for betta to be healthy?


Thank you.

MORE INFO PLZ!!!!!!

size of tank in liters
type of light tube you have
what wattage is your heater

by sun light i presume you mean uv light no fish do not need actual uv light however if you want plants they do

the amount of time you have the light on can vary to your needs in most aquariums people do not adjust the light timers to simulate the seasons so you can pick any season form the fish you keep and give the amount of light you like and the fish will just act like it is the respective season

10 would be fine for most fish yes

your heaters are slightly over powered which is good they will do this with ease

i have a 150 liter tank with a 60 liter sump and only have a 150 watt heater so your deffinatly good to go there
