Temp fluctuation how much is acceptable for CRS?
My tank at the office runs 70 at night and 73-75 when the light is on.
Its Mini M with Archea 27 watt.

With everyone saying stability is the key, is this daily fluctuation ok for CRS?

It's fine.

But would be ideal if you kept temperatures no warmer than 72-73. Do you have a small fan in case temps go any higher?

its at my work so the ambient temps are always at about 70, just when the light comes on it gets to 74 or 75.
since its on my desk I wanted to have as little on or around the tank as possible.

I'm talking tiny - like portable-size.

Or computer cooling fan. Do you have an old one you could keep in a drawer and use only when temps creep up?

That way you wouldn't have to worry.
