    DefaultGet ready for summer's First Heat Wave!!!

    For aquarists, the coming heat wave may be of concern. The expected temp is going to reach 28C or higher.

    My plan is to capture cool night air in the house, keep an eye on the temp. during the day & perhaps switch to a reverse photoperiod (lights on at night & off during the heat of the day). May also turn on some fans over the reef tank & pull out the A/C unit if it gets really hot.

    Thursday is supposed to be the hottest day.

    Just a heads up people

    Anthony

    Thumbs up

    When I was into reef tanks heat was always a concern.
    Now that I am into turtles heat is a good thing.
    I may put some of mine outside in the pond so they can enjoy it more.

    210 Gallon turtle paludarium.

    Now forecast is 30C in Vancouver (so add a few degrees for in the Valley) and 31C on Thursday.

    My A/C is now pulled out, all the pieces found & ready to turn on tomorrow afternoon.

    Soon, we may "miss" our crappy weather from the past month (what a bunch of whiners, eh?)
