I think that is not a bad temperature. They can go colder than that. I've had mine for four years now and normally the temp is in the low 20's. I know all the advice is to go colder than that but that's the ambient temp in the room where I keep them and they seem to be doing fine. Just be sure they've got good water!

Thanks for the reply Dr. Phil here in Australia NSW it’s in the mid thirty’s I have a chiller set at 18 degrees at the moment but just to stop the chiller struggling so much I was going to bump the temp up to 19

You are very welcome - that should be no problem at all. I'm in Italy at the moment and here it's about 5 C with cold rain and forecast to get colder. Mid-30's doesn't sound too bad right now!

    you got a cooler :D Thats so cool! i normally chill their water down if it gets too warm with clean dechlorinated water when they were in their bigger tanks. i'll need to get one that can work with two tanks at some point. or find them for cheap and get two quiet ones. since im in an apartment.
