Immediate Help

I was transporting my tank home from college. Here is the issue...during a two hour drive, the temperature dropped from 82 degrees to 72 degrees. Is this a problem because everything looks small and shriveled. Did I lose my entire coral collection: ricordea, mushrooms, kenya tree, etc.

Please answer ASAP with any suggestions on how to reconcile the issue.


Boiler Up!!!!

Current Tank Info: Aquapod 12 Gallon HQI: Ricordea/LPS/SPS

Slowly bring the temp back to normal. You will be fine. I would much rather see a temp drop than a spike.
