82 degrees is what I have always kept my tanks at.

Blackdude,
I don't think that keeping your temp over 82 is going to shorten your fish's life span. Where did you hear that at, now you have me nervous.

Sorry men.. We will need some expert advice ...

So would an excessive(like 84) temperature reduice the live expectancy of the Ps ?

Anything above 84 can kill your fish. Remember to keep salt in the tank to keep down the fungus in these warmer tanks. Also note more temp equals more aggression. The increase in metablism increases their search for food which in turns makes them aggressive and very hungry.

Aquarium salt i just give a good dash after changing water, 1 teaspoon per 5 gals when sick. And i keep it at 79 unless sick or injured. I have never noticed a difference in them at higher temps, but that is just me.
