I have a tank that has goldfish. It's starting to get cold outside. Should I get something special to heat the tank?

Measure the temperature in your fish tank. You can judge if it's too cool by checkin what the correct temperature is for your type of fish. There are a number  of different heaters available  for fish tanks. Your pet supplier should be able to tell you which one is right for your species of fish and tank size. Check the water temperature regularly to make sure the heater is working properly and keeping the temperature steady.
