Fire reds are not what I had to worry about. The CRS and OEBTs were. My fire red survived (even thrived) from last summer when I didn't have any AC or fans for tanks. It got to 100 degree outside, and I'm sure my tank water was close to 90 if not more (my thermometer only goes until 86, and it was maxed out so I didn't know the actual temperature). Had to drop some frozen water bottles in the tank to lower to like 84-86. Needless to say that batch of CRS and OEBTs didn't last long last summer.
