    Tank temps ??

    I'm just wondering with this hot weather we are having what everyone tank temps are curently... I checked mine and its at 81... I usually keep it at 79 so I'm wondering if this will effect my corals what should I do to keep it down a bit.. If everyones tank is around the same and my corals will be fine then all is good

    You could always shorten you halide period to keep it cooler.

    The average temperature of the reefs we get our corals from is 83.7 degrees so 81 will not affect your corals at all
    Mine ranges from 79 to 82 and all corals sps, lps and softy grow very fast and are very healthy

    My tank use to range arround 79 to 83 and I have to use a fan too. The only problem is that I have to check my water level more often.
