That is amazing! *drools* I'll post pics of my tanks tomorrow. I'm technically supposed to be sleeping right now, so all the lights are off and stuff.

I'm not sure exactly when. I need to save up enough to get it. I should have enough soon for at least the powerhead. And I discovered that I need a new heater too... Yay, another thing to buy! :/

Actually if your room temp is ~75 you should be fine without a heater. Depending in what lights you have. If they're led, it may be too cool, but I think if your steady at 75 that's perfectly fine.

But remember that in some situations, house temperatures will alternate between seasons. In winter, we only heat the house to 65 and in summer, it's up at 75. It may be good now but when winter comes the temperature might drop.

Our house is a really old farm house. It was built in 1888, and has very bad installation. So the temperature in my room, where the tank will be, is not stable at all. On my other ten gallon in my room, I use a heater and it keeps it pretty stable.

That's what I meant by steady. If its always atleast 75 and never over 82 your fine. As long as the temp changes are very gradual and aren't over 2 degrees a day it's fine. And you can have 75 in winter and 82 in summer just make sure it's not a sudden increase. They need to acclimate.
