This topic has come up in a couple of recent conversations. I would like to know what Temperature you keep your tanks at and why.
In an ideal world, I could set a heater to 78 degrees and magically my tank water would stay at 78 degrees. But, that's not the case: heaters are not built well enough to withstand the 30 degree temperature shifts in my house. Someday when I have a fish room (not this house!) I'll have the room at 78 degrees because I believe that's best for the fish.ahud said:Triscuit
Most literature I have read states that temperature varies 6 degrees Fahrenheit, so I agree with all the information you gave. But do you not think that its a big deal to keep our tanks pretty consistent at 80 and never give take the temperature back down to 74-75?
