^ that :)

76 as the lowest and 85 for a bit to warm. Only if, u lie where it gets cold and ur fish r by a window, should u have it a 85 so over night when it cools its doesnt go under 76

oO I'm confused. LOL 80F is 80F. a good heater should keep the temperature steady at 80F if it is set to do so. you should not have to notch a heater up to 86 and have it fluctuate to 76...... are you taking your heater out by any chance bryana? you should be keeping your heater in the tank and plugged in at all times.

Normally, heaters automatically keep your tanks at 78-82

if you got a non adjustable heater, some try to keep your tanks at 5F above room temperature. others will try to keep it at a set temperature ie. 78F

I recommend the adjustable heaters. these are less flaky and do their jobs well in a wide variety of water volumes.
