Yes, the water will cool down in the BBS hatchery-but it is a non issue for me due to I feed it fast-I feed the BBS with egg yolk intact other wise they have little nutrition and the fry still starve to death or will get poor growth and development. You can see a sudden death twirl and parasite/pathogen with poor nutrition.
You need to get two BBS hatcheries going about 12h apart to provide the needed nutrition when feeding just BBS
As you are finding out...the easy part is spawning...the hard part is raising and feeding the fry...this can be tricky and a bit harder for some especially when your not set up to provide and meet the needs of growing fish
You can do it.......get another container of BBS going-3Tlb aquarium salt to 1 gallon of 85F water to 1/4tsp/BBS and add an airstone-you should have BBS with yolk sac intact within 18-24H
