    Hi Friends,

    Thought some of you might find this interesting.

    As the guys in Durban area would know, we have been having some strange weather lately. I was sitting in my lounge last night when my girlfrienf noticed something wierd, my seahorse tank, which runs at 23C, was covered in condensation!, never seen something like this, and it happened as the storm front hit us, lasted only about 30 minutes and then had cleared up. Only thing I can think of was that we had one hell of a hot day, was about 36C - 38C (here in PTN) and even higher in my flat, and then the cool moist air hit us? I'm not weatherman - Cause they are liars anyway.

    Wow never had it on the glass before. But then I run dehumidifiers when the humidity is too high.

    Wow that type of temperature must cause problems with setups , do you run Chillers? the hottest we get in Ireland is 23 C and I have to put a fan on to cool the tank down
