Temp max for a FOWLR tank?

giordanopg

Thinking (dreaming, planning) ahead.

What is the maximum temperature tolerable for a fish only with live rock tank?
how about for a reef tank?

I live in a very hot city and I'm not sure I will be able to afford a chiller.

My current freshwater tank is in my office and the water is around 76-80 F, but it has been as high as 82.

IDEAL PARAMS:
78 F to 84 F - average reef temperature tends to be 81 F . Though some SPS corals like cooler water temps. A chiller is not necessary if you use fans blowing across the top of the tank water. You should be fine.

My tank hits 82 in the summer and it's fine, though smaller the tank the faster it will heat up, just keep that in mind. My 29 gallon tank is two levels above my 5.5gallon tank and it stays cooler than my 5.5.

SPS (Small Polyp Scleractinia)
LPL (Large Polyp Scleractinia)

;D
Isn't the also LPS or is that different?

O0I don't. I thought I was at least a little knowledgeable in this. Turns out I'm a noob in a sea of marine biologists here. Gives me a lot to read about.
