I haven't used any heaters in my tanks because they have always stayed at about 74-76 degrees.I have been reading here that if you raise the temp to about 78-80 degrees your p's will be more active.How can I add and adjust the heaters without harming my p's.

Some heaters are not real accurate off the temp on the dial. I would suggest that you slowly bring the temp up over a few days. Use your thermometer to keep track of the temp and get the tank to a stready 80.

I figured I'd let everyone know how my temp change went...FYI...everything went just fine,everyone is at 80 degrees.I have already noticed an increased activity in them.I feel better knowing that I have their temp where it should be.Thanks for all the advice.
