    Hi all,

    I was wondering, does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to heat a fishroom. It's only about 12 square meters but looking for something that uses a thermometer to maintain temp or something that automatically turns on and off when needed. Biggest reason I want to change to heating the room is I'm setting up a lot more grow out tanks so with all the bigger aquarium heaters it would probably be the same or less electricity to heat the room.

    Also want to be able to use tubs to hatch out fry for the rainbows and killifish.

    Any specific type or brand? I'm hoping to find one that will maintain a room temp without running 24/7

    Or would I be able to attach a digital thermometer to an Aircon unit to keep the temp within a specific range for example 28-30

    Try check a heat pump too. Meant to use for hot water but see if you can make it work for your application

    The best way to heat a 12 square meter fishroom is to use a space heater with a built-in thermostat. This type of heater automatically turns on and off to keep the room at a steady temperature. It can be more efficient than using multiple aquarium heaters, especially with many tanks. Additionally, it will allow you to use tubs for hatching fry without needing extra heaters. Make sure to get a heater that's safe for small rooms and designed for continuous use.
