I adjusted to right at 80 (26.6c if Im not mistaken) and now Im just watching my thermometer to make sure it stays at the right temp. I may keep my eyes peeled for a smaller one and reserve this one for a bigger tank in the future but for now atleast it beats the heat mat I was using, his temp fluctuated too much in that one ( but is was still better than nothing)
right now sushi is just circling the heater and flaring at it, but he did that when I added is thermometer as well so hopefully he will get used to it and learn to appreciate it as well. atleast till mommy can get him a smaller one....
