Mine is locked at 78F. The chiller allows it to move less than .2F. This is even with all LEDs. The pumps can add a surprising amount of heat.

I keep mine at 79. It's easy to do with a controller.

Controller? Make me aware...

I don't even need my heater on and I'm 80-81 easily! I'm starting to worry about the summer time. I don't run the AC when I'm not home due to the Con-Ed bill will be through the roof!!

I wonder what summer will bring for my saltwater tank......

About all a controller can do is turn off the lights and kick on a fan? A small chiller will do the job even if the room heats up. If you use enough lights to grow coral, you are probably producing some heat. I think going much over 85F is dangerous to coral and higher could really harm them. JIMO, but my son has had to dump ice cubes in his nano to prevent disaster a few times last summer.
