I have learned so much from
your web site. I was wondering
if I can put a heater in
my existing cool water tank,
I have 6 platies , 3 neon's,
a loach, an alges fish,
and a catfish.
The water was pretty warm,
but now it's a lot cooler,
and I want the platies to
breed better. I read the
info. On your page about
starting warm water tank,
but I didn't know if I could
install a heater and just
increase the temp. slowly.
Thanks so much,
Vanessa. We are glad to know you reading AquariumFish.net
and learning more about your fish.
All of the fish on your list are warm water species
and need an aquarium heater. Buy a good aquarium
heater. Read the directions in the box carefully,
and install the heater in your aquarium as explained
in those directions.
Usually the directions recommend that you install
the heater, turn the temperature down, then rotate
the dial to increase the setting until the indicator
light just comes on. Then wait several hours, check
the temperature, and adjust it again. Keep repeating
until your water is the correct temperature.
Of course you'll also need a thermometer to measure
the temperature of your water.
