    i just did a water change and noticed that the water temp inside my tank is at 88° i live in california and for 3 days now weve been getting weather temp in 100°+...i turned my heater off 3 hrs ago and i just checked my temp..its now on 85° is there anyway I can lower that temp? also i turned my heater off so is this going to be a problem?

    ice cubes! you can freeze some aquarium water in a bag or ice tray . or you could just use plain old ice just dont add to much without treating the water. But 88 isnt that bad just make sure the fish have plenty of water movement to keep o2 levels up

    i have my airstone crank on full blast and i took the duckbill out of my power head so its blowing bubbles from my venturi attachment... IS THIS ENOUGH?

    i think the airstone was enough alone but it never hurts
