i have red jewels and kribensis all about the same size (.5-.75 in) and was wondering if i can put the together in a 20 gallon take for a grow out i guess thats what it would be called i just dont have the funds quite yet to get more heaters and some of my breeders are popping out more fry then i had imagined

Red jewels get nasty at a very young age, I wouldn't advise it.

Whats the temp in the room? You dont NEED heaters.

I would say if they are that small you might be ok but like fern said the jewels get nasty pretty young so you might want to expierment with it at 1st. Put a few in and see what happens.

Stop saving the jewel fry till you have the room for everyone else first. That sounds harsh I know but worry about the others first.

What about a room heater? I roll a floor heater into the room for the winter. Keeps the room warm. I have no heaters in my tanks b/c I have lost many fish at the hands of a heater and so has many of my good fish friends

Heater malfunction all the time if you can get by without them that's your safest bet. It seems like every other month someone lost a whole tank due to a heater. Even inline heaters. Hey Jesse sounds like it's time to put the garage off limits till spring so the doors not being opened. If you use heaters in the tanks be careful if someone opens the door on a really cold day. Cold air hitting a warm tanks can burst the glass tanks it's happened to me.

Just get a ceramic space heater and a fan, heater at one end of the room and fan at the other to move the heat around. You can get a pretty nice one for $30!
Make sure it has the tip over shut off safety though... just in case it falls over! Also the ceramics are safer than the element ones and are safer and better on electricity consumption.

You really need to think about insulating the walls soon, even just the foam sheets would help a bunch! They have some really nice foam board insulation's out now and you don't have to mess with nasty fiberglass insulation!

For your attic the best thing would probably be the rolls of fiber glass insulation, you only have to mess with it once up there and they seem to be the best bang for the buck.

The new infra reds put out a ton of heat most also have a thermostat now so they do not get too hot and you can control the room tamp..78 deg anyone :) little more than 30 bucks though usually in the 50-80 range depending on size and area effectiveness out put

b/c hybrids are not good for the hobby. Just do me a favor and dont sell them or give them to anyone. Keep the for personal only. Hybrids are very bad for the hobby. usafishbox

I am not against the people that keep them I would just like to educate you on what you are keeping.
