Temps for Clowns

I'd like to take a poll regarding temps in Farenheit for clowns. For the most part, I've always had good results at 83. But, someone's recent comment has me thinking again. I know, sometimes thinking can be dangerous, but I think the results of a temp poll might yield some interesting results.

I remember previously trying different temps down to as low as 77, but if I remember correctly, anything lower than 80 seemed to stress my clowns. I went as high as 88 once to rid the clowns of ICH, and afterward gradually lowered temps over an entire week to find the comfort zone for them. At the time, 83 seemed to be where they were most active an gregarious.

What temps are you all running for your clowns?

Thanks,
Kelvin
