Took a study break and glued some moss. Need to find time to trim some plants from my other tanks.
I have been monitoring the temp of the tank and noticed that the tank was in the upper 70s even at night when the house was 74 degrees inside. I didn't notice the heater turning on so I thought it was a problem with all the equipment running and the laptop that is next to the tank. I jumped the gun and bought a cooling fan unit for the tank since I want to keep OEBTs. Now today with the temperature around 74 in the house the temp in the tank has stayed around 74. I guess the fan was not a bad buy since I like to keep my other tanks at 77, I can just run the AC less when I am not here and have the fan running to save money. Trying to do this on a budget so depending on the temperatures I might just sell/trade/return the fan.
I have a TDS meter on the way also.
