Ah, so you're storing the water. Yes, 60 degrees is fine.

Be sure the buckets have a lid or you at least cover them with foil or plastic to keep the water clean.

What is your room temperature range during the year? What happens in summer?

not much, because i have A/C and heating so.... it usually around 60-65 i live in oregon so its cold and rainy always. I was also wondering if keeping the rock at that low of a temp. would casue harm to the bacteria in it or the organisms that are on the rock? what have been your experiences?
