Hi,

I just moved to Tokyo and want to start a new tank. In summer, temperatures remain consistently around 35 C (95 F) and our flat is on the top floor. While at home, we will use an airconditioner, but we will also be away for 4 weeks in summer, so during this time, the airconditioning will not be running.
I am worried that water temperatures will get way too high (if already the room temperature is 35 degrees....):icon_roll
Can anyone recommend me something to keep water temperatures down while we're away and what kind of fishes are most suited to high water temperatures?

Thanks a lot,

Susanne

I would consider a chiller necessary for that scenario.

Uggh, I hate Tokyo summer weather! ;) The worst thing is that it doesn't cool down very much at night.

Water has a very high specific heat, but it will eventually reach the room temperature. Chillers are expensive but they do work. As for high-temp fish, species from shallow equatorial waters should be best.
