    I've been reading a lot on breeding clownfish and the best I could come up with for temperature suggestions is a steady 80.6 degrees farenheit. I was considering having my controller automatically adjust the temperature to the yearly changes in temp for the reef as it does in the wild, but then I thought that maybe the fish would slow down reproducing if they thought it was a different season.

    Anyone got any thoughts on to whether we should duplicate whats happening in nature as close as possible or try to keep the levels constant year round??

    Thanks in advance for your comments.
