So I decided to move the tank myself this weekend since I didn't want to wait for the 24th for the LFS
to do it for free...(I'm very impatient, its amazing I let the tank cycle for 6 weeks, lol). Everything went smoothly and all the livestock is doing great! I read, reread, and read again all the posts and articles about moving and so I figured it wouldn't be too bad moving it myself. The only thing is my rock work isnt exactly the same which is a little disappointing because I loved the way it was but Im still working on getting things moved around. Soooo....just wanted to fill everyone in on the fact that the tank was officially moved to my new home and all is well!
I also placed an order for new equipment with drsfostersmith.com. I got a protein skimmer made for the BioCube, new nets, a new SW
test kit, new bulbs for my 8g and the 29g, and a refractometer with calibration fluid. So thats about it and can't wait 'til it all gets here!
Now for a question...
1) The tank used to be in a basement family room so it was always nice and cool and i always had the temp. between 80-82F. Now the tank is in my living room upstairs where it is pretty hot during the day if no one is home and the AC
isnt on. Yesterday it got up to 84F! So whats my best bet? If the AC
is off during the day its going to get way too hot for the tank so should I have a fan blowing on it for the whole day or what else could I do besides spending entirely too much on a chiller that I will only need for the summer months?
