It is the start of March and already the weather is becoming an issue. I was doing a water change today and my RO unit is hooked to the hose and by the time I had enough water in the bucket the water was already about 76 degrees. (all of this was done before 11am)

 

I had anticipated this so I had frozen a zip lock bad full of water before hand and added that to the bucket. It cooled the ~3 gallons of water down to about 68 before I dumped it into the tank. The tank water went from 72 degrees down to 70 degrees and the shrimp all seem happy.
