	here is my troublesome set up.

Right now the water temp is between 65-70 in the day.  Might go down to
the 50-40 range overnight.  It has been a warm winter for us on
Haleakala. I think short periods of 50-60 would work.  I think Norm was
working with moina also.  He might have a better idea as to the constant
temp needed to keep them going.  

I need to get one of those recording temp probes and see just how much
variation there is inthe day to day and season to season (yes we have
seasons in Hawaii ;-).
