    SO.

    You have limitless bucks and can buy the best marine aquarium water temperature management equipment, with state-of-the art heaters and whatnot that will keep that water within 1femto-BTU at all times, day and night, 24/7/365. Set-and-forget.

    You have one large main display tank, with whatever type of livestock you prefer.

    To what temperature do you set the dial?

    The Great Barrier Reef water temperatures seems to range between 22.5 and 29C - averaging around 26C

    Personally I'd go with a cooler temperature - 24oC - on the lower side of the average. Just feel that a lower temperature gives youa slightly better oxygen solubility and lower metabolic rate for livestock, meaning they will (hopefully) live longer.

    My goes from 25 to 26.5 on a very hot day, NO CHILLER, just two 25watt boyu fans blowing over my sump that has very high flow. On normal days like today, it sits at 25.5-26.

    "posable", are you asking me to pose for you or are you asking if it's possible? I'll assume the latter, and yes it is very possible to start a poll, just ask the starter of this thread to teach you how to do it, or can't your iPad do that?.:biggrin:

    p.s. I voted 26

    Yes i know, but this one is different. I wanted to see the diferent tank stats.
    Some tanks get into the 30s some times and others around 20.
