Water too warm. What best to do?
My air conditioning in currently out of comission. As a result, my tank has been getting warmer and warmer. it is now between 80 and 82. I have mostly tetras and cories and I am concerned that the water is getting too warm. Anyone have any thoughts as to the best way to lower the temp without shocking the fish? Getting the AC replaced thurs, so I just need to get them through the next couple days. Unfortunately they cannot jusy move to the basement like I have!
use a fan.fan the surface of the tank it will help to cool it.

If you don't have any fish that are notorious jumpers, leave the top open. Evaporative cooling really helps keep the temp down a few degrees. And always have a fan going in your room. I uses these techniques to keep my goldfish tank from getting above 85F in the summer.
