No heater HELP!

I just went out and spent $50 on plants for my low tech set up. I figured I'd pick up a heater on the way home. Well the store was closed. Will my plants be ok in the meantime? right now the tank is at 78 dig but might drop over night into the 60's. It's a small tank so the temp in it will probobly fall.

I plan on picking a heater up in the morning but what should I do in the meantime.

The plants are in pots should I leaven them in the bag in a warm area or put them in the tank?

Your house gets into the 60's overnight? Maybe you need insulation, and not a heater

The plants will be fine for a while, just don't put them in the freezer. We ship plants all throughout the winter, and as long as they don't freeze, they're fine.

depending on the size of tank... your tank probably won't drop below 70 in one night if the ambient temperature is 60

Just wrap it in a thick blanket or something, it'll be fine.

Falling down, isn't failure,
refusing to get back up is.
