Last summer I experienced quite the heatwave with my boy Crusoe. His tank average at about 85 degrees because I have no air conditioner. For a few non-consecutive days it even hit 90 degrees! I did things like freeze pre-conditioned water into ice cubes in a cup that I would float in his tank to try an cool the water but not at too quick a rate. I kept a blanket over the tank to provide shade (he is near but not directly in front of my window) and aim all the fans I owned at the tank.

They can survive surprisingly drastic temperatures. It is not a good idea to keep them in such conditions long term but one in a while will not kill them. I am already making plans on how to deal with this upcoming summer's heat. I certainly do not want to put m boy through that again.

I'm thankful that Bermuda has such a small range of temperatures for the most part. Even in the summer, it usually doesn't even get into the 90s, although it feels hotter because the humidity levels are around 80-90%, depending on the day. But, thankfully, we never noticed a big temperature change in our old Berry's tank.
