I personally like the cheap ones too! They seem way more accurate, I've tried about 3 or 4 electronic ones and each one always reads differently than the last! Still use the electronic ones in the tanks just to make sure the heater hasn't quit but i always have a cheapy on hand to double check.

Ok Experts I have an issue. Well, other than the stupid ammonia that won't seem to go away.

The temperature in the cube is 81 degrees. The heater is set on 75. :-( I think the lights are heating up the water. It gets down to 80 overnight after the lights have been off.
How do I tackle this issue. I havent removed the heater yet, so not sure if its heating the water even though its set for so low.

Probably the lights, mine heats up to like 78 during the day and cools to 76 at night which is fine, my heater is set to 75. I leave the feeding lid open and I also put something in the actual lid to keep it cracked open. I have a lid for one of my water jugs in the crack right now.

I always worry about my tank's temperature too. It's at 80 during the day and goes down to 78 overnight and it's not even summer yet Makes me think of what I'm gonna do with my cube.
People have to use heaters to temp match water for PWC and I have some ice in my freezer - tap water runs at 86F!

So would it be ok to keep the lid cracked? I won't be having any jumper fish.

The only issue I see is increased evaporation. I tried that on my FW and the water was going like crazy, but I don't know if it would be any different in a SW tank. Try and see how it works out for you now that you don't have any fish in there yet.

I unplugged the heater and have the front lid open. Lights are still on. I'm curious if the temp will drop. hmmm I hope so cause 81 seems a tad high to me.

On another note I just moved my original 29g sw tank out from the corner and filled her back up. Not sure what to do with it yet. Got no LR in yet just a badly dying brain coral and a few survivors in the CUC. The tank has been vacant for weeks. And I tested the water and its not too bad believe it or not. lol
