Broken A/C causing muck in my fish tank

I did not suppose it was possible for the inside of my home to get so sizzling that it would cause a spike in temperature inside my fish tank… One afternoon when I returned from work, I noticed that my home was honestly warm… Usually, before I leave for work, I make sure my thermostat is set to 76 degrees… There is nobody else at my home during the afternoon, so it doesn’t make sense to run the A/C while I am away at labor all afternoon.

On this certain afternoon, I noticed that something wasn’t right the moment I walked in the door.

The inside of my home was muggy and hot, but i could tell the A/C had not kicked on all afternoon. I did not worry too much because the weather had been perfect that week. I waited until the following morning to contact my landlord. The Heating and A/C serviceman was not able to help with the problem until the following week. I had sites I could stay until the repair, but I was beginning to worry about my fish tank. The sizzling air in the home had caused an algae bloom to take over my tank. The water was starting to fog up and turn green to the point where I could not see my fish! I called the fish store to see if there was anything I could to do prevent the bloom. I shut the window that was near the tank, and that seemed to help a little bit.
