I don't use a heater in my shrimp tank and all is well. Our house might get down to the high60s/low70s at night if we don't use the heater, but it's in the 70s range for the most part. During the summer, however, all bets are off. My tanks have gotten up into the mid80s or higher, although nothing horrible happened, except the apparent plant stress and algae seems to like that more.
