Heating Your Aquarium or Tank
The Aquarium Heater is vital to the well being of your fish, as it controls the temperature of the tank. Tropical fish generally need a temperature of between 24 – 27ºC. All Cascade heaters from Hagen, Aqua One, Tetra are designed to accurately maintain the tank temperature at the desired level, incorporating an easy to use dial with which the temperature can be set.
A heater is essential to maintain an ideal water temperature for fish. Extreme fluctuations can stress fish so keep an eye on the heater’s performance and use a thermometer for an at-a-glance check.
All fish are cold-blooded, which means their bodies are the same temperature as the water around them. Coldwater fish, like goldfish, do not need a heated environment. But tropical fish need the constant correct temperature provided by a submersible heater. This is important as sudden changes can cause stress and disease.
Our Tropical and Marine Fish originate from all over the globe and water temperatures vary immensely in their native environments. To be able to keep fish in an environment which is condusive with their natural habitat, we mostly will need to increase water temperature above normal room temperature. Aqua One provides a range of heating solutions to provide the perfect solution for each aquarium set up.
