    How do you heat your fish rooms? I ran duct from my furnace into it and it stays a steady 65 but my water hovers in the low sixties. I can't afford to run and put heaters in every tank and I'm unsure of a spaceheaters efficiency.

    My led lights pretty much heat mine. I have more trouble keeping it cool in summer.

    I have heaters in a third of my tanks. I think the room is in the mid 70's right now. Dehumidifier and air blower heat the some

    I run a heater in every other tank set in the mid 70s. I keep on tight lids. Generally my tanks run 70 to 75 while the basement is in the mid 60s. I also have an exhaust fan hooked up to a humidistat to control humidity. I also keep the lights on timers.

    I just got my new fish room up and running. It's running on a dedicated heat pump.

    Still playing with the settings. Tanks on the end of the room near the heat pump are running about 80 degrees. Tanks on the far end are 75. Bottom row is cooler by a few degrees. Still filling some tanks and it takes about 48 hours for them to get up to temperature which is throwing off some of my data. Will know better by next week the heat distribution.

    In my old fish room I had an electric space heater plugged into a Ranco controller that had the sensor in an aquarium. Kept the temperature very stable but was not very efficient.
