I've got an outdoor tank too with them
. Breeding flat out stops below 65 in that tank. I don't use heaters in any of my tanks either. But when I did, I had far better breeding out of my neos. I stopped using them because of the power drain too and the fact it was just one more thing to go wrong in the tanks.
And again, I tried to be real clear other folks would have different experiences. I can only comment on experiences I've personally had. Not spouting anything out as the gospel
