    Sorry if I have missed this, but have you considered a small power head to keep the water gently moving throughout the whole hight of the tank ? There are two reasons why I asked this, the first is to help increase oxygenation of the water due to the smaller surface area in relation to the total water volume, and to help ensure you get the water evenly heated throughout the hight of the tank. I've never kept a tank that tall so I am only guessing this could be two concerns
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Hey cliff, it is a concern, what I have in the tank at the moment is a drain thing attached to the filter at the bottom which sucks to the top and that seems to keep it moving pretty evenly. I've got two thermoters one on the top and one at the bottom there's maybe half a degree difference at most between the temps. My giant bubble stones also help, that's the white area with all the bubbles in the middle of the tank. Does that sound ok?

    Sounds like you have already concerned that and you have things in hand. You will just have to keep an eye on the two different temp zones you have set up (top and bottom areas of the tank) and make sure it's pretty close to matching. I would not worry at all about a 1/2 degree difference no two aquarium thermometers seam to be 100% calibrated the same.

    Ok good to know. I'm def keeping an eye on it. I check them at least 4-5 times a day, and it seems to be holding pretty steady. I am tossing up moving the heater further down to the tank, but seems to be alright at the mo. So will think about that one. Thanks for the heads up Cliff!
