So, does anyone else NOT run a heater?

Am I the only one that does not run a heater? Now, I live in Florida and that may have something to do with it.

no need to unplug them if it's warm enough they just won't kick on by themselves, I would hate to have am issue when the cold comes just because I forgot to plug them back in.

Yeah I've had my marine tank for two years and my freshwater one for over four and I've never used a heater. I guess that's the way it goes in tampa florida

I live in nj and it snows in the winter. No heater. House stays at 73 ish and 4 powerheads 3 pumps and 8bulb t5 do the trick.
