Got to be a typo. I doubt Cmor would purposely keep his tank temp that high.
I have no problem keeping my tank at 80-81 with 3 175w mh
's in my canopy, even without AC
. I have 3 fans in my canopy and a clip-on fan blowing over my sump in the basement.
The only issue I came across was the unbearable humidity in the basement. I had to set up a dehumidifier. So now I evaporate about 3 gal
/day from my tank, plus the dehumidifier in the basement pulls about 1.5-2 gals/day out of the air. The AC
keeps the humidity down upstairs.
