PWC to lower temp in tank, how much
Just trying to figure out where people stand on this. I have a 55g that reaches about 83 during the day (no heater) and 81 by night. It looks like it is stressing some of the fish out a bit, pretty warm. My water parameters are perfect, finally cycled.
When doing a water change, 30% I plan on using a water temp of 78. This MIGHT bring my tank temp down to 80-81 in my head. So a temp change of 2 degrees, is that such a bad thing? I am bringing the water in very slow, and they seem to love the water coming in, swimming to the stream.
Opinions, comments, experiences?
