    Temperature Problems

    yes i think i'll just go for it and turn it up,   2 of the tanks are in the same room,  the other one is in the dining room 15 feet away so no difference really and all have a light,   i think mikey maybe right, sounds like a big gap in calibration but..hey ho..never mind...will turn it up now...

    Platy Giving Birth?

    If it is fry it would/should be pretty obvious. They should be swimming around and if they are left in the main tank you should see them shooting off to try and hide. Without pictures or a video I wouldn't know exactly. If you are unable to get a picture/video then your best bet is to go on...
