I'm in day 7 on my cycle for my 10 gallon reef tank and I notice that my tank has been at 80-82 during the day and at night it stays at 80. I've turned down the heater and it's still hot. Where I live we get very hot summers and after summer is over it's pretty much cold after that what should I...

Just wondering if most have found that the stock Biocube fans are enough to keep the temps down in the tank? My tank is running around 80 now and wondered if I need to be proactive and add more fans before adding coral and starting to use the lights.
I am having trouble maintaining my temperature when running the protein skimmer. Temp is constant at 79.2 when the protein skimmer is off, however, when I run it the temp jumps to 82.
I do not really want to purchase a chiller. What are some of the ways others maintain the...
So the days are heating up here now, and better sooner than later because despite having air conditioning, no one in my house seems to want to use it, so my tank is heating up. I say better now than later because I haven't added any livestock yet - it's still just cycling. But if I'm ever going...
Whats up TRT! Okay this is my first post. I've had my 12g Cube for 6 years now and recently moved. My apartment was apparently cooler than my new home because I'm running a steady 82-85 with the ambient house temp @ 77. My fans have been crapped out now for a while, so now it's time to re-do my...
So even running a naked top I still get a temp swing from 77.5 to 82 during the day with my Tek Lights on (8hrs/day). Evaporation is 1-2 gallons per day. You can feel the heat radiating from the lights, the air and surface of the water is noticably warm when your arm is under there. I expected...
i Have 60"L x 18.5"W x 26''H tank that could possibly reach temperatures around 85 degrees on the hottest of days. Is it a must for me to have a chiller for a reef tankorwould fans dothe trick? If so anyone know any good chillers or fans? I dont think ill spend $500 or more on a chiller,
Does anyone have a recommendation for a specific cooling fan for inside a canopy? I've heard people say they use small computer fans, but there are a lot of choices out there. Not worried about price too much. Mostly interested in quality, low noise, and amount of air movement. Thanks.
I got the bug to build a hood for my hex tank. Anyhow I have two 80mm cooling fans im going to use in the hood. Would i be better off having one fan pull in air from one side, and one pushing air out the other?
Or do I use them both exhausting the air out...
pretty much just wondering how many of the IceCap variable speed cooling fans I'd need for my nano. I'm making a canopy thats enclosed but open top with egg crate (the stuff people use for frag racks) to stop stuff from falling in. its for a 20g 24 1/4x12 1/2 foot print s the canopy with be 24...

Check out this forum that talks about AC fans.
Based on the above forum...this will be the 120mm fans I purchase, then I don't have to worry about DC...
ok ive been putting this off for a while since i cant figure anything out, but i cant put it off anymore.
i cant get my temp stable. i recently switched to t5's from PC's. during the day my temp will be pretty good, around 75-76 degrees; but at night my temp will drop as low as 71-72 degrees. i...
Please give me your thoughts :help:
I have a potential problem......My tank temp is always 82 degrees in the day and 81 at night. It was around 83-84 until I propped open the hood about 3 inches. Is this still too high? Am I hurting my corals and fish? What else can I do without buying a...
Ok, well my tank is paused for a little while I have other stuff going on. My birthday was wednesday, getting a new truck (Nissan Titan 4dr, 4x4offroad Edition) :dance:. And going on vacation next week.
Anyway I noticed a couple things over the past week about my tank. Horrible temperature...
