How to be energy effeicient?

It's getting colder and colder these days.. What's the best way to save in my energy bill? At the moment I'm using a 100 watt heater for my 96 litre tank. It has half a lid. (I know it's weird lol)

So yeah.. How can u save money ?

tbh there isn't much you can do to reduce the amount of electricity needed to heat up an aquarium, i supose what you could do is cover the top of your tank with some thermal material to decrease the heat conductivity between the inside air and outside air of the tank.

that and keeping your room temperature high.
