Does anyone have any good ideas for keeping heat in my tank? I've brought my tank to work with me and the cottage I have rented has very poor insulation and expensive baseboard heaters. Im only in the process of cycling the tank but every morning I go to check and can't it up over 74⁰. The external walls of the house are quite cold so I was thinking possibly a foam cardboard background against the wall. I tend to sleep better when it's cooler so I have raised the temp on the house slightly but not enough that I think it will make a difference.

I kept a 55-long in the coldest corner of my garage basement last year. I wrapped three sides with that foam insulation board from a big box builder store (Lowes/Home Depot). It made a HUGE difference in the heater required for that tank.
