    Above the Bravo Supermarket on Winston Churchill they have a pet shop with lots of tropical fish. Maybe 10-15 tanks of various fish you can buy, plus all the accessories, tanks etc..

    I have no problem with the water temp. I just keep it out of the sun and the water is constantly moving with air bubbles. Thanks for the info about a fish store on Churchill.

    Thanks, good to know. I live in NE USA and during the summer months if I don't run the A/C the temperature can reach 80F and higher.

    Yes, but when kept in an aquarium the preferred water temperature is 72-78F. If the temperature is constantly above this level it is advisable to use a chiller.

    Tanks easily overheat, and your fishes can suffer or even die if their water gets too warm. Aquarium chillers come to the rescue in warm summer months, and offset heat from equipment like pumps and lights.

    What Temperature Is Good for Freshwater Tropical Fish? | eHow.com

    Quote:

    Freshwater tropical aquariums should be kept at approximately 77 degrees F for optimal fish health. Although tropical fish can survive in water ranging from 72 degrees F to 82 degrees F, it is best to hover around the 77 degree mark.

    To SD dwellers - is that place on the Malecon in El Cacique still there? They had some incredible creations, including an armchair made out of fish tanks. They probably did the normal rectangular ones too.
