They work!

The fan actually works!

I got my new canopy on, forgot to plug the fan on and the temp went from about 80 to about 82!!!!
I turned it on and a while later I looked and it was back to 80!

I guess fans really do do something.

I only have one fan in there, it doesnt blow very fast (Can barely see the kleenex rising up when you put it over the flow) and am wondering about adding a second tho, I wonder how cool I could get it? Down to 78?

You just want to make sure that there isn't a large flux when you turn off your lights and stuff at night. Stability is the key.

I have one. It does the job. There are a couple people that have had bad (very bad, like house fires) and blame the coralife power strips.

When I move to my 120 gal, I am replacing the power strips with digital timers just to be safe.
