I am new to my saltwater tank, only a month in. I live in NJ and yesterday it got up to the 80's with a cool breeze. My house got around 81 degrees but it was still pleasent and comfortable.
I noticed my tank temp got to 86 degrees! Of course I paniced and we left the lid open, put the cooling fan on but none of these things helped. We put the air conditioning on at night and now the water temp is between 78-80 degrees.
We normally run the air in the summer but not everyday. When there is a breeze we don't run i.
- Can the fish tollerabe 84-86 degrees? (for how long?)
- Do I need a chiller in these short circumstances?
- Is this normal?
Thanks and Happy Memorial Day!
