Erm not necessarily, I don't know how they do it but it would have to be stable ore else it would fail. Maybe someone who does it could tell you?

Sometimes during the colder wet season a few may suddenly die without showing any signs of illnesses. I thought they must have suffered pneumonia because they're constantly wet in bad weather. LOL

Stable room temperature = stable tank temp. But even if the room's temp. slightly fluctuates, it shouldn't effect them because tank temp will experience slower temp changes. As long as they're not in cold water for too long (1 week).

My tubs are outside, some with direct rain, some get poured from the roof (don't know the right word). Temp. may range around 75 - 77F (mid season). Fry survive as long as it doesn't stay at that range for 1 week (or more) straight. When ever we have sun (usually 2-5 hours/day), temp. rises. My point is; slight fluctuation won't hurt them. Not even newly hatched fry. As long as it's not constantly low.

Alright thank you guys a bunch! Also, have any of you cultured MW? I've watched some YouTube videos on it but was curious how you did it and what helped you.
