Temperature question

Could I change the temperature in my aquarium to 86 degrees Fahrenheit? I have a mandarin dragonet, 3 pairs of false percs, a pearlscale butterfly, a yellow tang, and blue tang, and an assortment of damsels.

No you dont want your temp that High. Mine stays a constant 78 degrees. Anywhere between 78-82 is OK but the key is to keep it stable. Not bouncing all around. What is your temperature now?



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

Oxygen decreases as temp. increase. Also fish eat more and therefore
pollutes more.
Happy Reefing,
