I wouldn’t worry about it as long as it doesn’t go over 80 and at the most 82. If your tank is completely covered I’d remove at a minimum 2” in the back if you have a plastic back attached to the glass cover to keep CO2 from building up. Better to go topless or half topless if you can.

If getting PC lights then it shouldn’t raise it too much. If you plan on getting MH lights then you might need a chiller in the future or keep your house closer to 70. What do you keep your house temp at?

With your house at 70 I’m kind of shocked it’s at 78 without lights. I wouldn’t think the ph would put out that much heat.

Sorry, a little off topic. Do you have the gun from http://tempgun.com/? Does it work on humans? Getting a good reading from my little girl (18 months) is next to impossible
