Sorry, went back a few pages and couldn't find what lights you have, but judging by the pic it's either PC or T5? The lights themselves shouldn't be creating enough heat to cause a 6 degree difference between what the heater is set to unless they aren't properly vented by fans pulling cool air in and pushing hot air out.

It's just the stock pc 36watts dual fixture. I tried running it with the hood open today and it didn't help. Still at 81 degrees. I also have the heater unplugged in case it was malfunctioning. Both fans are actually working you can feel the breeze.

Any thoughts?

Ahhh sorry, thought you were referring to the pic of the tank in post 859. It should feel like you are blowing hot air on your hand at a constant speed. How hot does the room the tank is in get?

Hmm, I'm eager to figure this out, cause I want to know if this is something that I'll have to worry about. I'd agree with heater. Don't know though.
