So, i am a poor college student haha, and i live with 3 other roommates, and i have five 10 gallons in my room. Since I cannot turn off the heater for obvious reason, can i turn off my filter (keep it on about 3-4 hours/day) to save on electricity? I am willing to change water often. Like 25% every 3 days. I have to lock my door most of the time so my roommates don't know i have gazillion of fish tanks in my room lol.
I am not worried about bacteria dying since I actually only have 1 cycled tank anyways, and it is live plant so I probably gonna keep that one on most of the time
My room light is really really bright so I actually never turn on any of the tank light except for the panted one. Can't wait for the summer time, when i can also turn off the heaters too
