Rep: Bmdmarie is an unknown quantity at this point
Exclamation Canít keep a controlled temperature.

I have set up my tank for my Axolotl, itís been cycling and my Axolotl arrives the first week in January. I have been monitoring my tank temperatures and I am so confused on how to keep it from fluctuating so much.

During the day itís anywhere from 67 degrees to 61.
Then at night it drops as low as 57.

I donít have any fans on it.
Thatís just my bedroom temperature and I have a ceiling fan which is on all the time.
Iím scared for when I get my axie that the huge fluctuations will cause it to get sick or stressed.

Default Re: Canít keep a controlled temperature.

A night time drop in temp is fine. As long as the fluctuations stay on the cold side you will be fine.
