DSM - Tank getting too hot?
Hello, I'm trying to dry start hemianthus callitrichoides (HC) in a 15G, but I feel the air temperature within the tank is getting too hot. My room temperature is 73 degrees and it feels like the tank is 4-5 degrees hotter. It's sealed with seran wrap, but I poked holes into it and I open the wrap up to let in fresh air for 20 minutes daily. I have 2 CFL's 12 inches above the substrate and they are 23 and 26W 6500K, daylight bulbs. Does anyone have an idea to lower the air temperature or is it fine for HC?
