I have a 30G with (2) 2 1/2" Red Eureka Peacocks. Just purchased them today.

The HEATER is a 3606 Eheim/Jager Heater 200-300L / 150 Watts.
The heater temp was set @ 74 degrees, however the thermometer reads 92 degrees - been fishless cylcling for about a month.

I unplugged the heater as it appears to be overheating the water and caused my other fishes to die the 1st time. I exchanged it for another one today. It's suppose to automatically shut off but even @ 67 degrees the thermometer was reading 92 degrees.

I have NOT put in the new heater as the thermometer reads 82 degrees. Will that temp be good for them if I do not connect the heater? The room temp is very warm so I am assuming that's why the water is 82 degrees.

Thank you.
