HELP bowl temp question

my shrimp bowl ( RCS ) which is obviously "no tech" sits in a room where the temp stays at 70. Is this ok for the shrimp? If not what type of heater do I need? Im posting this in the shrimp forum as well.

70 is fine. Ideal is 74-75. My bowl sits at a constant 69-70. I just don't expect them to produce a billion babies for me or anything. Heaters are tough to find for stuff this small.

right, and quite honestly, it sort of would kill the look of the thing. It would be nice if there was a small heat pad the bowl could sit on though
