yes, you'll need a heater. having the temp bounce around like that is not good at all for the fish. a good heater is the marineland stealth pro. it'll keep it perfect.

+1. Go for the Stealth, they're the best IMO. And when you get one, make sure you SLOWLY raise the temp in the tank, so you don't shock your fish any more than you have to.
