I noticed that my water temp during hot days is reaching between 80 and 82 degrees... is this bad for short periods or should I find a way to chill the tank?

i keep mine at 79-81 range and no 82 is not high anything over 86 is danger zone. most acceptable range is 76-82 (84 being high end)

I figure it is a transference thing. We humans like to keep the air cooler inside then the air outside. So we figure the fish would like a tank cooler then the ocean. :lmao:


It really depends on the inhabitants of your tank. But that is basically tropical ocean range. The more important thing is what is the full range? You say it is reaching 80 and 82, but not what it is reaching it from. 82 in itself isn't bad, but if your starting point is in the mid 70's then it could be.
