Not if you have fans on the tank. You'd probably only need a chiller if the room temps were high. I'm not that familiar with the intensity of the T-5's. It was my understanding that they were more intense than PC
's but not drastically so. I have a 20H with a pair of 65w PC
's and, IMO
, it could use more. I wouldn't attempt SPS
in there unless I could locate it right at the top. JMHO
