Water temperature high

Recommended Posts

Hi all, ive just set up an 11L tank that i plan to keep bloody mary shrimp in. I have fluval stratum and some plants in the tank at the moment with an internal filter. So far the temperature in the tank was 29.6 degrees and today its 30.4 degrees.

Ive just taken the lid of the tank to help with evaporation though i dont think that will be enough as ive read the the ideal temp for shrimp is around 22 degrees.

Im thinking of putting something on the windows of my room to block the sun out. I live south of brisbane.

@Dragonova26 That's a tough one being only an 11 ltr tank.

As @Craigo suggests without a chiller setup ice blocks of some sort will help but could cause a real cold spot in the tank

You could try a fan blowing across the top of the water surface to help cool the water, i would also run an air stone if you don't already to break the water surface, the more agitation at the water surface should help disperse the heat as well as help gas exchange
