I also got a heater and a thermometer. As of right now the water is 78F. But I just hooked the heater up so I expect it to change.
I'm glad to hear you got him a heater! :D
Yes, put the water conditioner in ASAP. Without water conditioner, the chlorine & metals in your water will kill him. Always use water conditioner, be sure to read the instructions on the back, i add a few extra drops of conditioner in the summer because chlorine levels are raised because more nasties want to get into our water because of the heat.
Yes, while using AQ salt, 100% daily water changes are necessary. If you need any more help, let us know. :)
