Right now it is at 62 degrees, but once it is cycled it will be kept around 55 I am thinking.

I should show you what it looked like before the cycle die off, I hoped I wouldn't have a cycle because it was taken directly from the ocean but I am still in the middle of it. Its gonna take another month or so for the cycle to complete.

Ah, that sucks... It looked really nice.

It's cool that you've got such a low temperature planned!

It hangs around 55. Or a little higher. But all of this stuff can be found in tidepools and under rocks where temps get above 70 haha

I am thinking this winter. It should be fully stable then, that is also when the spiny lumpsuckers some into the shallows.
