So I had an emergency. My sister got sick yesterday and asked me to take her to the hospital which caused me to neglect the tank for a day. And I finally got home this morning. Well I guess the water evaporated fairly quickly during the day. Causing the heater to be a bit more than half way out of the water in the return pump chamber of my fluval 13.5. Temp was at 72.9, I’m in a huge rush to work didn’t have a time to check the water params but my salinity wasn’t too bad. It was 1.027. I topped of the tank and brought it back down to 1.024. My question is how do I go about the temperature, is it bad for it to go up too fast? The heater is submerged and doing its job again. I have another small heater I use to heat up the water containers for water changes. Should I add that one into the mix too to get the temp up to normal (78 degrees) faster? Or would that be a bad thing?? I currently have 2 clowns and some LPS and softies. btw I know I should buy an ATO but I’m a full time college student with a part time job that barely covers this semesters books, once I recover from my school expenses that will be the first thing I will buy.
