So I've had Claude for almost two days, and we bought one heater that never worked. When we went to Petco to get the one I wanted, they told us that it never came in their shipment after they promised us that it was. So in the meantime, I've ordered a heater off Amazon, but I have so many problems trying to maintain a decent heat in my tank.
Here's my predicament: I'm at college, in a very old dorm that is COLD. Yesterday I kept a lamp over Claude's tank and it managed to keep the water temp around 74-75, but still not where it should be. This morning when I woke up to check on him, the temp was down to 70 (I turned the lamp off).
Is there any way I can heat the tank sans heater for a few days? Will the lamp be enough? Should I have a friend run me to the store today to get another one in the meantime?
