Temp Control While on Vacation
I'll be away from home for 3 weeks in August, last time I did this my fish died (either due to high temps, a automatic feeder malfunction, or a combination of both). I now have better flow (possibly a new filter, but an air stone has been added and I have a koralia nano) but I am running co2 whereas last time this happened I wasn't.
My options are to take my chances, purchase an extra air pump to try to keep oxygen levels up when the temp rises, or to run my AC while gone to keep the temperature in apartment under 90F.
A chiller would be the best option, but I can't justify the price when I only have about $15 worth of fish in the tank. I'd also prefer not to leave an AC unit on for 3 weeks when no one is home.
I won't be using the feeder this time as I have a friend that can stop by twice while I'm away so the fish don't go more than a week w/o food.
Think I'll be OK as is, or would you go for the extra air stone?
