Temps;

I live in phoenix az outside air temps 107, my inside temp 79 to 80 degrees my 30 gal tank is running at 80 to 82 degrees. Is this to high for the health of my fish?

yep that's what I run. It's better to keep it warm then to have it swing in temp from like 78 - 83.

Another fellow Arizonian! I live in the Gilbert area, and it has been very hot lately. I keep my temp consistently at 79 degrees and my fish are doing fine. Where do you shop for your live stuff?

Tempe AZ here.

The worst part of living in AZ is the evaporation because of the low humidity

I hear that about the evaporation. I just added a few gallons tonight to my 90G. It does beat the cold though.

I would consider getting a couple of fans to help with the temperature problem. NO lights put out low heat, but VHO's will put out more. I think liveaquaria.com sells them for around $30-40.
I am going to get some PC lights, in addition to the NO lights I am using right now.
