    My fish house has been a constant 28.9 and has not moved, looks like the Kingspan is working wonders. Shame it cant store the heat for the winter :)

    pity it didnt go the other way ie failed altogether and was cold, i recently moved 4 bristle noses from a 5 footer in fish house , emtied full tank of water filled it up again with hose about an inch from top i spotted a bristle nose. stuck my hand in thinking it was dead it moved slightly so i flung it in the tank next to me that was at 78f it swam to the bottom and was fine lol
