    I still haven't got my 25watt heater for my tank but when i do get it, would i have to take the fish out then put them back in slowly from a small aquarium bag or can i just put the heater in?

    leave the fish in, put the heater in and slowly raise the thermostat on the heater so the tank slowly heats up. Hope that helps :)

    Raise it by approx 1oC/2oF per hour until at the desired temp.

    Good morning and Welcome to Fish Lore!:sign0016:

    Once you put the heater into place, let it set for 20 minutes so that it adjusts to the temperature of the tank first. Then turn it on.

    just put the heater in the fish will get used to the temp change because it goes up very sloley.
