I have a 20 gallon with mollies and guppies. I have the tank temp set at 76 degrees. The tank is in a room that gets a bit chilly during the winter, roughly around 67 -68 degrees. Some days depending on how cold the day is, it can get drafty.

So my question is, do I raise the temperature of the tank? Will the heater always kick on if I don't raise it? I believe ideally anything ranging between 68 -78 is acceptable, but I do have fry and fish carrying fry too. What do you suggest?

If your heater is set to 76f the tank should always be 76f regardless of room temp.
If it's not, the heater is either undersized or not working right.

It is probably not working right. Thanks!
