    What's the tank temp range to keep a Clown tang and a Yellow tang happy and ICH-free? As I head into the Winters months, I keep my house around 68 degrees. Every degree above the ambient house temp is going to make my electric bill go up. So i need to know what's a good temp range. .

    I have a 150 Gal live rock and coral tank. Thanks to a friend going out of the Fish Store business a few months back, about the same time I set the tank up, I acquired several fish and corals in one day. The fish have done pretty well and the corals have also. But I plan to increase the corals...

    I'm curious what the relationship is between algae growth and water temperature? When I had a power outage a few weeks back it seemed like my tank was overcome with algae, so to recover I did a large water change and scrubbed all of my rocks clean. Now I was just looking at my tank a week and a...

    So for the past 6 months or so I've been running my apex controller with some basic probes ph and temp. I decided to add on the salinity probe as well which also uses its own temp probe. When I added this I noticed that the two temp readings were way off. I never checked the reading on my apex...

    I have been having a hard time to get my Temp down. Its been staying at the high mark of 80 degrees. I have my adjustable heater set way down to 74 degrees. I was thinking my powerhead was generating extra heat in the tank, But it doesnt feel hot. Plus the water feels cool to the touch, like...

    I have a 180g 6ft tank and bot the returns are on 1 side. I noticed my fish would only ever stay on 1 side of the tank so I checked the water temp. It's about 3-5 degrees different on the other side of the tank. What's the best way of getting the tank all 1 temp? I have my power heads setup in a...

    I was doing some reading and have seen many different answers regarding what the water temp should be in a QT tank and even a DT. My LFS said that the higher the temp the more likely you wont have any problems with Ich etc. (which I am currently battling through hypo/quarantine) They told me...
