I know, I know, its all about good temps but Im having trouble keeping my temps up because its gotten a bit colder in Ontario. Daytime is OKAYY not perfect but I'll be ok with them(lower than Id like), but nighttime im afraid they're getting too low.
Anything I can do? I have no water features to use a tank heater, or empty space falsebottom to put it their either.
Help?

Try an undertank heater. Keeps your tank warm, but get one no more than 10 watts for a PDF tank, but if your temps get below 60f you should get a 15w or similar.

heat the room. there are plenty of affordable hydronic and oil filled radiators available. you can even get a thermostat (like one made by LUX) that plugs in to your wall and controlls your heater.

I agree with the heat the room comment.. less likely to have a disaster and easier to adjust.

not sure that is the best way to go as if any water from misting or watering the plants gets to where the stick on heater is boom goes the glass and frogs and everything could go everywhere if the glass breaks enough. like james said heat the room or even a small room heater with a fan blowing it towards the tank.
