soooooooooooooooo this tank is just too hot...

I know that CRS like the temps lower than what the tank is at...

I have my 25w heater turned ALL the way down but the tank stays at 77/78 .... I wish I could get it more like in the mid to low 70's - I have heard about CRS dying off when the temps are high and they really need 70-74 to be healthy and I am sure most all of you will agree with that.

I don't know what to do because all small heaters under 25w dont adjust and just automatically go to 78 degrees, and my 25w is too powerful even at its lowest setting that says it is set to 72 but wont drop under 77/78!!!

Maybe its just my 25w is low quality?

I dunno!

If anyone has any ideas about a heater that actually maintains low 70's and could work with my 2g tank I am all ears!
