I have a new temperature controller. It has 2 temp settings. One for day and one for night. How well will apistos do with 77f during the day then heat is maintained at 70 during the night. It will mimic the heat of the sun.
Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Most apisto species live in shaded jungle streams with a slow current. Except after a heavy rain the temperature of the water remains the same, day and night. I don't think you need to vary the temperature. Most apistophiles do not and are successful keeping and breeding them.
