One problem however is the heat. Japanese summers are way too hot. His water temperature should be around 20 C but lately it's been at 30 C.
I've asked at the pet shops what people in Japan do, and they told me to use frozen PET bottles. A PET bottle melts within on hour though, and only takes the water temperature down by 3 or 4 degrees. Since I'm at work 10 hours a day, I don't think this is going to be very effective. I'm not sure what to do. I don't want him to get sick. I'll try to think of something.
I've also starting finishing off the first tank I built with the waterfall. I let it cure for over a month and though the pH is still around 8, I think that once I get the aquasoil it is and let it fun for a couple weeks, it should be fine.
