LOL thanks guys! yea the appartment has *zero* insulation abbeysdad.. not worried about it because i wont be here long and everything else was great.. just an old place.. might get the a/c from the basement i just dont want to pay for more electricity yet... anyway i ended up floating a small double ziploc bag with some ice cubes in it and dropped a degree or 2.. bottles are a good idea.. on a different/cool/interesting note, my 2 jewel cichlids CERTAINLY did not mind the temp.. i was looking at one of my jewels today which i suspected of having bloat.. and suddenly realized that it was no longer hideously fat any more.. and then i realized why she was at the back of the tank and all my barbs were cowering in the corner... a whole mess of eggs on the driftwood! cool but now i either have to vacuum her eggs or quickly find a home for a bunch of angry fish that no one wants.. cool to know for sure that they are male/female and to see them guarding the eggs as i have never seen it before tho :) might start a new thread to see if anyone wants the fry.

The fish don't seem overly bothered by the weather, I think the odd behaviour I noticed may be some kind of spawning behaviour. Just never noticed it before in the glow lights. The danios I have were definitely doing the same thing the other day, and when I changed the floss filter pads there was eggs stuck to it. must be the weather, or the time of the year maybe? I know nothing about fish reproduction.....
cheers for the advice though
If you worry you die, and if you don't worry you still die..... so why worry?
