Alright so I have two things to address really.
Alright the first is, if I have a filter do I need an air stone as well? I think with my sharks I did. I'm thinking since I might get a shrimp to eat up the food on the bottom would one be needed?
Also I live in Texas and it gets pretty hot here...even in my room. With the heater on I fear the tank over heating. I mean it's literally 102 on average outside with humidity and about 80 to 90 in my room depending on if I have my xbox going and have shut off the rats fan. (Rats need a fan on their cage or they overheat too easily) Could the tank overheat? I try to keep it between 78 to 80.
