Thread: Temperature Question
01-01-2013, 03:19 AM #1
Over the course of the day I have steadily lowered the temperature in my tank from 78 to 76 in order to make things more cozy for my galaxy rasboras; they share the tank with cardinals, dwarf corys and endlers.
My question is will I loose any nitrifying bacteria from the dip in temperature? I really should have asked before I dropped the temp, I know... Should I raise the temp back up or will things be alright?

A gradual two degree temperature drop isn't going to hurt fish or bacteria or anything else.300 gallon mega tank: build in progress
75 gallon community tank: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco

29 gallon frog tank / 10 gallon tadpole tank: 1 leopard frog, 1 tadpole
