Chiller Sizes

Hi everyone. I am sure there have been similar posts, but here goes. As I move ahead with my plans to switch from FOWLR to a reef tank, I am exploring the possibility of needing a chiller. When/if I do, what are some suggestions for a 120 gallon tank? I was looking at Ebay, and there were many different brands/models, that were similar in horspower but were suitable for different tank sizes. Also, if anyone has had problems with any types of chillers, please let me know. Thanks......Andy

For a 120g tank I would use at least a 1/4 hp one with a better option being a 1/3 hp... I bought mine from a guy at Ebay used at a fraction of the price of a new one and it was practically new. It has given me no problems since I bought it.
