I did not guess it was possible for the inside of our house to get so sizzling that it would cause a spike in temperature inside our fish tank, but one day when I returned from work, I noticed that our house was undoubtedly warm, and usually, before I leave for work, I make sure our temperature control is set to 68 degrees.
There is nobody else at our house while both of us were in the day, so it doesn’t make sense to run the A/C while I am away at work all day.
On this certain day, I noticed that something wasn’t right the moment I walked in the door. The inside of our house was muggy and hot. I could tell the A/C had not kicked on all day. I did not worry too much because the weather had been perfect that week. I waited until the following afternoon to contact our landlord. The HVAC supplier was not able to help with the concern until the following week. I had sites I could stay until the repair, although I was beginning to worry about our fish tank. The sizzling air in the house had caused an algae bloom to take over our tank. The water was starting to fog up and turn yellow to the point where I could not see our fish! I called the fish store to see if there was anything I could to do prevent the bloom. I shut the window that was near the tank, and that seemed to help a little bit.
