    It’s summer here so the tank gets to 76-78 degrees..... should I put some declorinated instead ice cubes in to cool it? Lol I know they like low 70s but mine seem to be doing great. Any opinions are welcome.

    Occam’s razor: sometimes the simplest explanation is the correct one. If it seems fine, then it’s fine. My goldfish tank is around that tempt and sometimes even higher. I’m talking around the low 80s F. If you decide to add ice cubes anyway, I don’t think it has to be dechlorinated. Not enough chlorine to have a negative effect on the entire tank, imo.

    Check this thread out and the two links I posted, and then decide for yourself:
