I am wondering because I came across this calculator that ask's you to provide the temperature in & outside of your tank. So Does Warm Water weigh more then Cold Water??

Uhm, I think warm water would be lighter than cold. Cold water is more dense is it not?

Maybe I am making this up lol. Makes sense in my head.

I don't think that would even make a measurable difference i.e. the weight of air :D

Out of curiosity, what is the calculator calculating?
Depending on that we can probably tell you why its asking.

Hello. obviously from the wiki, cold is heavier. but it must be unnoticeable. i just got off a 4 hr shift where i packed 26 5g buckets to the back and some were cold and some were warm i did not notice any difference. i guess if you had a 200g or more, then you might see a small difference. Cheers
