I think I have a 30-40 gallon UTH or possibly the size larger for that... I think I might have gone 50-60 gallon UTH because of the fact that I went for a 40 gallon long instead of just a breeder, so it was harder to find one that took up half the bottom, the warmer half is 78-80 degrees usually it stays in the 80 range since I got my Strawberry because I am trying to keep it warmer

Straws do seem to prefer the warmer temp, and a proper salinity level to their ocean/sea water. But there are many times too I catch my straws on the cooler side, and that is also where they normally molt at too.

I've noticed that my Straw likes the warmer side... or it could just be he likes the eco earth in that side of the tank. Got to look at his gender he is officially a boy. ^^ He seems to be doing well compared to my last Strawberry, Gizmo is much healthier, it could be I just wasn't ready to have a strawberry at that point or Crim was just too stressed with PPS. I'm not sure, but I am happy that all is well right now ^^. Hey Marie how many Straws do you have?
