That's a 10 degree drop in one day... NO GOOD... I have the heater back in and it's slowly climbing back up. No signs of stress in my fish, I look more stressed than them! They are giving me the "what's wrong?" look... But how BAD is it that this happened?? Like I know I made a mistake, but how bad should I expect to pay for it?
I wouldn't worry ... A 10 degree drop in an hour yes, but I suspect, in your case it happened over the course of several hours... Plenty of time for fish to adjust.
