I placed my 3 bottles into a 10 gallon tank filled it with water and plopped
a small heater and power head into the mix. I keep the tank at a cozy 73-75
degrees F all winter long. The power head keeps the temp even and the water
from going stagnent.. Only problem was at first they floated a bit. But I
learned to only fill the tank to the same level as the level of mix that is
in the bottles.
