chillers

Hey guys i've bean looking at chillers for my reef tank and from my research i've seen that jbj artica is the best. Just tell me some of your ideas on chillers and my tank is about 42-43 gals with sump included.

For a tank that small most chillers are going to be overkill. I would suggest putting a fan over the top of your tank or sump. A lot of people use the 120mm computer fans or just a desk fan. They can be built into a lighting canopy if you have one.

They make a bit difference in your tank temperature and are a lot cheaper then a chiller that you will most likely only use during the few hottest months of summer.
