I have been doing saltwater aquarium for 4 months now and I have a 100gal running 72 cree Leds, 1200gph return pump, full length overflow skimming box, 2s Ecotech Mp10's, Octopus needlewheel skimmer & 18w UV
light and want to know if I need to get a Chiller to raise soft corals.
My temp during the day is 81 and at night 80 so my swing is small.
My friend keeps his tank at 78 and keeps Zoa's, stars & Anenomes and tells me I need a chiller.
I got some local Zoa's(I live in Hawaii) and they seem to be doing ok.
I also bought more online and they died(not sure if they acclimated well).
My system has zero levels of the Nitrogen cycle I get ocean water from local fishery and I dose Kalkwasser with top off RO
See my tank here:
Any help appreciated.
