    So with the tank sold most of my LR has been placed in a Big Bucket with 3 Seios. The seios give of major heat in such a small volume of water. As the water was warm to the touch not sure of the actual temp higher ten normal tank water. How hot can the water get before the beneficial bacteria perishes? After i felt the water i switched off 1 pump and that cooled it off a bit, should i leave it that way or will it be better hot? I dont care much for the pods as most died off in the move. The denitrifaction is my concern.

    Hi Ziyaad - live rock will survive temps at to 30 degrees (I experienced water temps of 34 degrees celsius over the reefs in the Seychelles)..... BUT, this should not be for prolonged periods though.
