Okay! update! So I read the instructions on the instruction manual (before reading your answers *whoops*
) I let the heater sit for about 20-30 minutes before plugging it in. When i plugged it in it slowly went up over the course of the night. It is now sitting at 80 degrees. Is this okay for a tank? keeping in mind Its not adjustable.
Also It evaporates the water sooooooo
fast! just over night it evaporated to at least 1cm below the minimum water line. jeeez
So I filled it back up and pushed it down slightly so that the water is well past the minimum water line. Im also experiencing lots of condensation on the lid of the tank
Oh well! If its keeping my fish warm I suppose its okay right?!
I am picking up another heater + thermometer for lewis today as well
