My house is always about 20-21 celcius, so about 69-70 fareheit. Should I use, or not use a heater for my bimac?

When we say try to keep the tank in the low 70's, we assume you're having problems with the tank temperature being too high. Actually, bimics don't come from tropical waters, so they can live in lower temperatures - in the 60's is fine. People rarely need heaters for bimacs kept in the house.
