Since we got our new lights, even though we have the heater set to 75F it always stays around 80F. I am afraid to turn the heater down any lower for fear that it will drop too low overnight. It can get pretty cold around here.

I do need more snails. My LFS doesn't seem to have too many. I would love to order online but their minimum orders are too high since I don't want to add any other live stock right now.

Golden Brown covers the bottom and sides of the tank....It would be pretty normal for you to have some at this point, Leesanhua.

They will eventually burn out on there own. If you want to help rid the tank of them sooner you can add some hermits and snails after the cycle is completed

Don't turn the heater down, turn it up a few notch's. If the daytime temp runs at 80°, you want the heater to maintain that at night while the lights are off. 80° is just fine as a running temp but you want to avoid fluctuations where possible.

Cheers
