Sure but just got my hot tub going to. Lol it's getting cold in Florida. I was going to wait on the chiller till the spring but Black Friday on BRS was a good of a price to pass up. Got another dosing pump for meg too.
So done with Christmas all ready
My bill did go down after getting LEDs lights

Your chiller will pay for itself. Corals do much better when temps are lower than 80 degrees and don't fluctuate. Good purchase.

I think you're brother is mistaken. The higher the temperature the less dissolved gasses. But it is the fluctuations that will slowly kill off things. Some corals (and fish) could care less. But some do. My chiller broke down one summer when I couldn't afford to fix it. Tank temps went up to only 82-84 degrees, but it killed off almost half my coral in a few months.

I no longer have to run my ac in the house. Open the widows get some fresh air in the house. The tank says 76 to 77 corals love it, fish so to LOL yes I'm saving money

I agree and add to that the health of your corals and fish.
