Don't worry. Room temp (70 to 78F) does very well for me. I hatch out a
batch of brine shrimp every day and feed them to my fish and inverts as
well as growing some to larger sizes. I don't worry about the temp at all.
My hatch rate with Aquatic Eco Systems cysts (eggs) is so close to 100%
that you can't tell the difference effectively.
