maybe just a little lower. make sure you dont go to low for the filter to work. they like to lay eggs on the glass above the water line . keep lid closed for the humidity .

not sure i have never had mine in an open tank. all you can do is wait and see. if u notice the eggs drying out maybe splash a little water on them
