How do you think this will settle, will the bacteria/virus/fungus die over time or do you think I have to reset. There are still about 10 comets in both tanks and they seem to do good.
The bacteria will level off on it's own.

I'd have to think it would cost that much to heat one of the IBC tubes for Tilapia. I'd think most like the same cost as heating your aquariums.
