My fresh water tank with tropical fish is at 25.5 C (77.9 F). 26C (78.8F) should be OKIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

Same here. I always have my freshwater tanks at 26C - 27C. There's quite a few catfish that don't really enjoy temps above 27C, so I think if you kept the temp right where it is, then you'll have no problems!Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark
