    I use a titanium heater in my quarantine/hospital tank to bring the temperature up. It can do 100F without getting above that.

    Forgot to ask, what is your room temperature?

    I recommend Finnex. Mine lasted longer than all my other heaters and was also more powerful even though it was the same wattage. Mine went out due to user error not manufacture problem. It came out of the water and fried otherwise I'd still have it. I love their digital controller for regular use. I don't think it goes up to 100 degrees but it had a loud alarm that goes off if the temp gets too high or too low (you set where you want it to be). After my heater went out I still am using the controller as a thermometer and the alarm goes off even without the heating element attached.

    Sorry for butting in on your thread with my question yesterday.

    Hiedi, raising the temp will only help with internal parasites, if you are not sure what is wrong with the fish I don't think it would be advisable to use heat treatment because if it has a bacterial infection heat tratment could potentially kill your fish. If you haven't done so already, please fill out a disease questionnaire. Also, do you have a microscope? if so this is the best method and only accurate means of identifying parasites or bacterial infection.
