Hello All !
So ive been thinking of setting up a small tank in the garage with a 25 w heater. ( fluval 25 watt heater that doesnt have the ability to change the temp?
its getting colder and colder here in western canada,
planning for it to be a quarantine tank / plants ( growing out trimmings )

Will it be ok to do ?

What would the temp difference be between the tank and the air around it? How big of a tank?

Hello! I'd recommend keeping it inside the house, if at all possible; a 25w heater likely isn't going to be able to heat 5 gallons to a habitable temperature if the ambient is 2C.
