Just like with any other living thing, temperature regulation is important for fishes
if they are to live healthy and full lives. In fact, the right temperature is even more important for them because they are cold-blooded creatures, which means they rely heavily on their surroundings to regulate their body temperature. They don`t have the capacity to regulate their own body heat, unlike for us warm-blooded folks.
Thus, it`s necessary that you install a heater in your aquarium, especially if you live in a cold area and you own tropical fishes who are used to a warmer climate. A good kind of heater to use is the Azoo Titanium Heate from Pet Store
r. Because it is made with titanium, it does not corrode from exposure to acidity or alkalinity. It also does not corrode from exposure to salt, making it usable for either saltwater or freshwater tanks.

This significantly decreases the chances for overheating. It is safe to use within your home, and at 100 watts, its energy consumption is quite low.
