Angry Darn heat!

ok you all (well most of you) are over seas from me (im in Australia) talk in Fahrenheit so after using a converter your tanks are 76-86 fahrenheit, thats 24-30 degrees for aussies. now to the point were currently in summer so for the last three months its been cold wet hot dry cold flood etcetc, today and yesterday were HOT im talking 30+ degrees cel. i peeked at neros thermometer earlier and groaned he was registering close to 35 degrees (95 fahrenheit for out of Aust.) and so i tossed a few ice cubes in a ziplock bg and currently floating them in his tank. hes down to bout 28 degrees (bout 82.5 fahrenheit) so im monitoring him earlier he was right at the bottom of his tank under his moss belly touching the bottom, after adding the ice bag hes resting ontop of the moss closer to the ice lol.. so far dastans tanks cooler but its closer to the fan and window, in the air flow. but if he heats up ill ice bag him too...but i dont want to risk wrecking his 7cm wide bubble nest hes built.

I must admit that I'm really happy that I live in Canada. It's pretty easy to warm something up, but it's very hard to cool something down imo. Good luck with your fish.

But eek, 30 degrees? We get that in the summer, and sometimes warmer too, but I hate it! Right now it's -22 outside but my fish are at a nice 25/26 degrees.

We hit 40 degrees a couple of days ago, but none of my tanks were affected by the change in temperature (even if my room felt like the tropics). My heaters just turned themselves off for the day and I wilted away at work.

Sounds like you're doing everything right with the fan and ice, and hopefully the big heatwave goes away. This time of year always makes me nervous about bushfires.
