As some of you may know, I just got my tank today and set it up. The heater that came with it (100 watt) doesnt look like its doing anything. The light is on, but I have it jacked up to heat it to like 89 degrees. If I turn it down to 72-75 the light never comes on like it isnt doing anything. Any thoughts on that?
Also, as I have only just put the water in this tank today for the first time and am letting it filter before I add any fish, I am noticing air bubbles all over the glass on on the plants, etc. Is this normal? AND, there is dust from the substrate I put in (black) all over the plants leaves. I washed the gravel with cold water for like 20 minutes before I put it in the tank and STILL there is dust...LOL
. Anyway to get that off of there? It isnt murking up the water - yet - but I dont want it to either. Any suggestions/answers to these questions?
