Temperature

I was wondering what temperature I should set my heaters at.
My first tank is for red cherry shrimp. The second has glowlight tetras. I will ad german blue rams.
I have the first tank set at 70 and the second set at 76 (degrees ferenheit).

Your tanks temperatures seem about right to me, but personally I would raise it just a tad bit on both.

From my experience, Red Cherry Shrimp are one of the few shrimp species that can do just fine in cooler temperatures - 72 degrees Fahrenheit at the least so bump it up to that.

Also from my experience, German Blue Rams liked a bit warmer water so I always set mine to 78 - 86 when I did own them. Personally I would recommend bumping up the tank (When the GBRs are in) to 78 minimum.

Thanks, I will bump up both right now.
