Heat opinions...

Was wondering people's opinions on breeding and raising fry at temps higher than usually suggested such as 85-86... Just curious :)

I prefer 84.. but nothing is wrong with 85/86.. :) 80-86 is commonly recommended.

Better breeding results and faster fry growth from what I can see.

That's true. Also it's believed high temps produces more male.
I breed more to a natural temp - no heaters. Higher during dry season and lower during wet season.

xD you are so lucky Indjo, you have no idea how badly I want to breed like that. This summer when it gets into the 90's I want to spawn a few fish outside though.

I may try a summer spawn outside over the summer as well.

I am interested in seeing how natural temp and humidity work on the spawn vs artificial. I'll compair notes with my spawn I am working for now compared to my breeding this summer. Also I hear higher temps increase growth rate of spawn and lower temps slow it down. I currently am conditioning my pair at 84 and 80. The female at 80 since her tank is too small for a heater and my room heats my tanks naturally to 80 since I heat my room to 84 xD

Beats taking up a lot of plug ins.

I sleep in my fish room xD I am so use to it though, anything under 75 is too cold for me now and I have to put on long sleeves. Everyone else can't stand being in my room too long though, if I have friends over they don't want to be in here.
