Yea i know its not huge,

well last night (once it cooled down) i had the heater so the temp stayed on around 28.4, i watched it for a few hours and it really just stayed around that temp so i thought i was good for minimum temp but this morning it was on 27.4. i just wonder why since i didnt change the heater settings.

I am using a digital thermometer, one that sits inside the tank.and i have it on the other side of the tank from the heater. close to the top of the water, about 1 inch from the water line.

I think you should be good with that swing. You have to take into account the heaters have a degree of error in heating/reading...same thing with thermometers.....

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
