I cannot heat the tank past 80F :)
I'm really starting to hate that sticky! LOL I filled it out the other day when I asked for help when I brought him home, no one answered but Sakura. He's a VT that I took home with severe (floating belly up) SBD last week. He has since corrected and was able to swim normally, until he eats.
