Summer tank temps?
I have a decent sized house with especially poor insulation, so I tend to keep my A/C set at a fairly high temp of 78-79 degrees. And I live in North Carolina, so ambient temperature dropping below that, at least during the day, is a rare cause for celebration.
As this will be my first full summer with high-tech planted tanks, I'm curious as to others' practices, especially those of y'all Southerners. Do you just unplug your heaters until September? Do you use chillers? Fans?
I have no shrimp or delicate fish, so I'm more concerned about fragile plants and mosses. With heat from lighting, I expect tank temps to spend the summer in as high as the 83-85 range during lighting periods. Come to think of it, maybe I should set lighting periods to nighttime hours. Anyway, thoughts?
