Does a shrimp nano tank need a heater?

Getting a nano tank for shrimps only in the week after its cycled im getting rcs but later id like to add some rhino shrimp.The temperature in the living room stays a constant 70F summer and winter(when living room heating is on). So i was just wondering if i should add a heater or leave things as is...without a heater?

That's just about the right temperature. No need for a heater.

Agreed. I never run heaters on my small shrimp tanks. I suppose if the temp varied a lot, it would be a necessity. But so long as it stays a pretty consistent temp, they will be fine.

i would suggest one,in a volume of water that small,temp can swing really fast,and shrimp are fairly fragile.

Nope, room temperature around 70 is great for RCS, and even better for CRS.

Interesting to read this thread.

I had recently set up a 2.5g nano with shrimp, and I have a heater in it.
