How quickly to change the temp.

My last heater stopped working for some reason yesterday, and the water got down to 70 degrees recently which kind of freaked me out.

So I got a heater as quickly as I could and I have it in the tank right now. How quickly should I raise the temp on it so I do not shock him?

i think 1-2 degrees an hour is what is acceptable. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong

Yeah, they say that, but rlly a few degrees every few mins won't hurt them.

You could cup him ,and float him in the tank for an hour or more and then release him into the tank.

From my experience, I've had no problems with temp fluctuations as long as those fluctuations were within 1-2 +/- of what they were in, such as during a water change.

1 or 2 degrees every 15 minutes is sufficient. If you have adjustable, start at 73 and increase to 76 in 15 min. and so on..that would be ok.
