Too Hot

I woke up this morning and my fluval digital heater showed a temp of 74 degrees. Acting fast i bought a digital thermometer another fluval non digital heater from petsmart until I can get another digital heater. However, I manually set the temp to 78 at around 1:00pm and came home from work at 11:00pm and my tempature was 82. I lost a sailfin blenny and I am unable to find my psuedochromis. All I have left is my BTA and Maroon clown. How do I get the temperature down. I just started the process of putting my tank water in a glass and into the freezer and then dumping back into the tank. I currently have it down to 79.5

Dont think 82 degrees kill your fish...something else had to happen whats your parameters

Agreed I would make sure water parameters are all good also. 82 for one afternoon doesn't sound like enough to kill your sailfin. I could be wrong because I know tangs are sensitive fish but I would check parameters just to be safe

Unfortunately you will probably not find out exactly why you lost your tang. But if your tank is too hot you may want to look into a chiller especially in the summer when our house may be warmer.

My tank is usually 80 degrees. I doubt it was the water temp that did him in. I would blame it on the move and or water parameters.

82 degrees didn't kill your fish i dont think, i have had temp at 88 and lost nothing. I added a clip on fan blowing across my sump and my temp during the summer gets between 80-82
