How To Keep Your Tank At The Right Temperature For Your Fish, Coral, Or Marine Life
Some aquarists think that keeping your tank between 75-77 degrees is best. Others think that some corals and fishes do much better at temperatures of 80-85 degrees. Warmer water causes the lack of dissolved oxygen in the water. The loss of dissolved water can kill the occupants in your tank much faster than higher temperatures. Having good water movement and adequate surface and tank aeration can control this problem. Temperatures constantly changing in degrees too much up or down in short periods of time seems to be more of a threat. Chillers allow you to lower the warmer temperatures and keep them at a precise setting at all times. This is the most important factor. . . .
