Water Temperature

I have my water temperature set at 76F. Is higher better? What is the optimal temp for FOWLR?

Hi,

I run about 82F

Check this article out and see what ya think.

Conversely a lot of people run 76-78 in their SW and have no problems but I think it is a lil chilly.

I would aim for upping that temp to at least 78-80F. 76F, as snapcrackler says, is a bit on the chilly side of things. But do any temp increase slowly. 2 degrees isn't too much 4 might be a bit much all at once.
