Dont laugh at meeeee
This is probably going to make me
look really stupid but hey whatever.
My tank is in my bedroom. Lets say my bedroom is at 60 degrees F right now and my tank is at 78. If I turn the heat up in my room to 70-75 degrees w/out lowering the heater temp down on the tank, will my tank be around 88+ degrees?
I'd assume that a tank would adjust to room temp after some time. But if the tank is already being heated at 78 and the room temp is at 75 then would my visi-therm heater know not to work as hard and all would be fine? I'd think that as long as I didn't go over that 78 mark in my room then all would be fine.
I have a 55 gallon and a 10 gallon in there.
If I'm wrong, then whats my best bet of keeping the tank temp constant if I'm not always going to have the room heated (I shut off the heat when I leave the house) or as I stated before, would the heater just 'know' ?
