haha try keeping a room full of tanks at a constant temp!!!!

so far i've been ok, If i keep the AC set for 72 the tanks stay at around 74-76

I can set the AC lower obviously but i had it at 70 and it kept turning on.

I'm scared to see what the electric bill will be next month.

Central air, and ebo jager heaters. Everything has been perfect thus far, but i think the glass lids have helped keep fluctuations down.

I thought that keeping a low temperature was only a concern for Tiger Shrimp?

Neos can be kept at tropical aquarium temps without any problem. Not sure about Caridina's though.
