Do you have lids on the tank?
How long are your lights on and what kind of lights?
I have lids on the tank and I know my lighting generates a lot of heat. I haven't had my heater on for about 3 months now.
My light are on for 10 hrs a day. However I do turn one set off to help with the heat prob.
Tank is now at 27c.
