What is the room temperature, where the aquarium is? What temperature does that room reach in mid summer?
You shouldn't need to unplug your heaters. If the water is above the set point (what ever temp you set it for), the heat doesn't come on.Reiner said:I live in LA and usually by the end of June I unplug all my heaters until the end of September and my tanks hit 86 -88 every year and I never had a problem. Once it goes over 90 I would probably be concerned but cichlids are very tough to say the least.
