View Full Version : Temperature issues with tank outside on patio?

Just wondering what you guys think about having a rubbermaid stock tank outdoors under a patio. I'm concerned about evap and temperature. Do you guys think it'd get too hot out there with a fan or two blowing over the water?
You would need a chiller. When it is 95 out side in the shade fans wont bring the temps down that much.

And a heater for the cooler days.

Yeah I'm not worried about the cold, I was going to get a couple heaters for it. Worried about it getting too hot! It may be out of the question, I think I'll fill up a bucket and throw a PH in it for 2 days and see what the temp is like after that.

I mixed water outside the other day, when I got home from work the temp in the bucket was 94, in the shade.

Oliver, good to know man. Thanks.
I wanted to start aquaculturing LR and some softies in a 100-300g rubbermaid outside but it doesn't look to be a great option. Thanks for the heads up!
