In a effort to save on the power bill I have set my chiller to 80 degrees on my stone coral reef. I had always run my tank around 78-79 degrees. I don't think that I will see a difference nor will it effect anything but what temp are you all running your sps reef at? My tank is 210 gallons with a 50 gallon sump and three 400w MH and 2 110w VHOs on top. Halides are about 9- 10 inches above the water and I am thinking about lowering them to 7" I have 2 large honeywell fans in the canopy for air circulation

I try to run at 79 which isn't hard in the winter, but it normally runs between 80-83 duing the summer.

80-81 summer 78-79 in the winter. Have been as high as 83 in the summer with no ill effects.

My chiller is set at 80 degrees but it overreacts sometimes and goes down to 79. I've never put a chiller outdoors but mine is outside the tank setup/stand, if that's what you meant - -
