Do you think 84 is to high of a temp during the day?

75.8 to 80.1 through out the day. A rock solid tank temp allows for tank stock that is unable to cope in the event of a severe temperature fluctuation. The oceans have an ever changing temp dependent upon current, rain, and time of year. While there are changes that have to be made due to our glass boxes not having the water volume of the ocean some of the "stability" techniques used aren't necessarily the best course of action. In my opinion anyway.

currently 79 to 82. I think 84 is to high. I'm going to add a chiller because I don't like going above 81.
