nano chiller

Postby bunty123 » Wed Apr 30, 2014 4:19 pm

so its getting too hot here and saltwater aquarists are more concerned as the fishes ant other inverts are very sensitive to high temperature.in the net i read that a fowlr tank should have a max of 28'C .though my fishes are behaving normal,but i think i should find ways to lower the temperature in the tank.......someone suggested me dolphin 788 chiller but most of the places i ask they say no such small skimmers exist.....what is the remedy cause unlike freshwater tanks i cant put in chunks of ice or float chilled bottles cause that would change the salinity.....if i get some ways to lower the temp i might also keep some other stuff :D ....by the way i was using a chasis fan but it recently stopped working.the tank is placed in my bedroom so ac runs at night and afternoon but rest of the time the tank remains at 30'C..today it had reached 32'C...what do kac people suggest here...

FOWLR tank can withstand temps of 30-32'C but for a coral tank 28'C is the strict cut off

a word of precaution my friend, frequent changes in the temperature is much more devastating than a long term gradual increase in temperature.

I agree with what Sunny had to say. Anyways, a friend of mine is thinking of selling his chiller a Hailea HS-90A (HC-500A). If you need it, I can talk to him.

I agree putting chunks of ice will change the salinity but how does the salinity of water can change by floating chilled water bottles with their caps on? Can you help ne understand.
