If you don't happen to find the root cause, 81 isn't bad. I kept my tank in the 79-81 region, on the higher end most of the time. Wolf, the standard hood fixtures don't put off enough to worry about.

well the rocks do absorb water, so the water in them can be warmer then the rest

The heaters say may be off by 1 degree on the packaging. The thermometers do too.

1+1=2

So I kept the heater off overnight and have two thermometers in the tank. They both read 80 degrees. That's with no lights and the room temperature being 75.

I hope the temp will be ok. At least it's stable.

Well it's off to do my water testing.
woohoo

I have some serious concerns about my testing. :-(

I think I still see a tinge of green in this test. I also went ahead and tested 5 of my other tanks and they also seem to have a tinge of green. I know 6 of my tanks don't have ammonia LOL.

Could it be the test liquid, I mean I'm erring on the side of caution as far as reading them. Maybe I'm not matching the color on the card right? This ammonia test kit was purchased separately after I ran out of the master kit and the color card is a tad different.

Could this be it or am I actually having ammonia in all my tanks? lol Even the empty one? I have those ammonia hang on detectors in two of the tanks and they are coming in at 0. And yes, they work, I used one when I was cycling with ammonia and they showed it.

Heres this mornings test results



If anyone has any input now is the time! I was wanting to order my gobies this week.

Here's a thought. If the color card for the new testing liquid is a little different why not use that card to read it.
