That's a real shame, it is difficult to keep the heat down in a smaller tank, even moreso when it not a taller tank. :(

Indeed! The tank hasn’t dropped in temp ( 27*C currently ) but I’ve put an air pump in to try and give it a bit more oxygen/surface movement. Seems to have done the job as no more dead in or out of the tank! Still have one male amano shrimp out of the lot that were in there, and some how the lone Otto hasn’t been affected.
