a few days ago i was having temperature issues. the coralife digital thermometer was reading 84, 85, 86 F. these things are known for being wrong but i still had to double check. im still not sure what caused the excess heat generation, whether it was a malfunctioning heater, the heat from in the house, heat from submerged pumps... who knows. i plugged in a controller (been sitting with my fish stuff, should have been using it sooner) and sure enough it read 83-84 and i think even at one point 85 F. i turned the heater down and a few days later ( monitoring temps ) seems to have stabalized. heres the controller that reads pH on the top and temp on the bottom.
picked up alittle more cheato algae today too, a guy gave me a 5 gallon bucket packed to the top, literally.

im not a fan of small hyper, barky little dogs but this one i swear is the quietest, calmest thing. i think it was the runt of the litter and that prob. has something to do with it. i believe its a mini pin mixed with something else.
