Ambient temperature increase in platy tank

  1. vasyat Member Member

    Hi all. I have 6 marigold platys which have been in the tank (16.5 gallon) a week and are doing great. Question is my heater is set to 77 degrees but during the day the house gets up to 82 or so and the aquarium water temp end up at 79. Is this too high or too much fluctuation? If it is, I guess my only solution would be to set the AC to 77 degrees to make sure the tank temp doesn't rise mid-day. Thanks.
