This has happened to us ours went to 115* For how long I do not know it happened over night some time , so it had to have been awhile since it got that hot ... I suffered only 2 losses a hammer and 1 small frag ... I dropped the temp to 86* in 15 minutes and then brought it down from there over 1 hour to 77* with fans and central ac (in the middle of winter :p) I set up ran 2 filters with carbon changing them out every 4 or so hours and did a 50% H20 change that evening ...I had no other losses ....Ours happened due to a heater malfunction after that I got a reefkeeper that also has a thermostat and will shut lights off and turn on a fan ...it will also keep the heater off in the event of a malfunction ... best $150 I ever spent ... I no longer worry about the issues of heater malfunction or bumping it and turning it up the dial is on the outside unlike others that are inside the tank ..and must be hands in tank to adjust .. since the RK2 (replaced with RKLite) I know that the thermostat in the RK watches as a "second" eye now this is not 100% fail proof as the probes do need replaced for the thermostat occasionaly but it gives you time to see it and also to "fix" it .... Not to hard to do if you keep an extra probe in stock for the inevitable failure of them ... This is in a nano so swings are harsher as well...it sucks and with all the equipment we use a good back up plan is a MUST ... Good luck
