Water heater

Hi new on here ,I’m using nft and Wilma in tent,my water is only prop 10 degrees,Iv heard people say don’t bother running at correct temp which I believe 20 degrees,Iv just bought water heater £15 it keeps heating up too 70 if left on then turns self off,which is too high,would it do any harm if put heater on electric timer?so heats up now and again,

Hello mate and welcome. Posting this just once would have got a reply. I and most people use aquarium heaters in wilmas, they are about 20 quid each for fleabay and you can set the temp to roughly 20 - 21 degress. No timer needed, just plug and play.

Hello and welcome mate. 20c is good for water temp. Anthing over 21c and you risk pythium/root rot. Below 18c and it's cold and will shock them,they will struggle with growth. ATB mate :yep:

Buy an aquarium heater, one that is sized to your res, and set it to 19 degrees, solved.

they are about 15 quid

Don't worry, you'll save more than that once you are up and running. Good luck mate.
