Ok well the chiller has been going for 24 hrs. Has the tank pulled down to 77.5 deg..... It has been super quiet and was very easy to hook up and get running.... Over all I am happy with this chiller so far....

Ok so here we go it's been a week with the reefkeeper RKL system.... Install was very easy..... Programming was easy as well.... The only issue I had was getting the my reef 2.0 to read the system.... But that was I needed to updated my reef 2.0... So no problem there.... I am using it to run my lights heater and chiller..... It has made keeping the temp of my tank very easy and now my light cycle is is set up to run for 8 hrs and don't have to worry about the m/h over heating my tank.... All and all system is worth every penny spent.....

Glad you like your RKL. It's expensive but it keeps everything nice and orderly.

I love shutting down equipment with the push of a button along with all the other features.

Ok so I am making changes to my tank I will show pics as I go but it will be a long time to complete....

First thing was 29 gallon refuge is now gone working on a new way to have macro in my system....

Second thing 40 watt uv is gone after using it for about a year I came to a conclusion it is not doing as much to justify spending more money on a new bulb....

More to come as it is going along
Thanks everyone for all the help and support on this tank

Good luck with the changes. I have always been on the fence about UV's and this is the reason why, lol, it seems to not do too much good for the cost.

Next thing to help revamp my system is I took out my big bio pellet reactor and replaced it with a phosban 150
