Hello all,

I know the recommended temperature for CRS is closer to 74, but has anyone kept CRS successfully at 77 deg?

My tank is typically maintained at 75, but with the heat wave we have going on it peaks in the middle of the day at 77 and I'm just wondering how worried I should be. I'd hate to kick off a bacterial infection.

Thank you,
Whiskey

You should be fine as long as it is not for extended periods. My tanks run 64-70 through the winter but peak daily around 78 in Summer...then cool to 74ish in the evening.

No problems here when my racks get to mid 70s during hot summer days in LA. for example today slight heat wave, mid 90s, even though I live near the beach its still HOT. I'm able to keep my tanks @ ~75 with the help of good fans and lots of frozen water bottles.
