So I am really new to this whole thing and live in camp verde AZ. I put a heater in each of my tanks and just got an extra thermometer to double check the temp. I have a 20 gal QT tank and a 140 gallon DT. The temp has not been below 83 Degrees F. Am I going to need a chiller?
Will my fish even survive this temp?

I know it’s hot outside but inside we keep it around 75. I just don’t get why the water is staying so warm.
Is this normal for arizona?
What is your experience with chillers?
Any particular brands to get stay away from?
How much would I need for this big tank?
Is it even worth it for my small tank since it’s just a QT?
