The tubing goes into a quik-connect that fits directly onto the maxijet outlet pipe.

Not at all. I just put the maxi-jet in one end of the sump and the other end in the other side of the sump next to my return pump.

Day's observation:

It hasn't been that warm lately here in Michigan, but today it got up in the upper 60's which means that my apartment was in the low 80's... (Thanks old ladies below me and to both my sides for keeping the heat so wonderful)

I had all the windows open and the AC on for awhile, and when doing the PWC's for the day, I realized that my 54 and frag / angler temp tank were both at 82F!

I shut the lights off for the frag tank, but I didn't mess with the 54. My guess is that having a skimmer pump, return pump, reactor pump, PH's and lights all add up! God help me if I have to buy a chiller!

Of course, if it continues to be an issue, I'll just buy a cheap fan first.

I am in Phoenix and I just run a fan and my tank sits around 77-78.5 so a fan should work

Lol. If all else fails you could always get a chiller off of Craigslist. It's always hot in Florida and I have never had the need for a chiller. However- the back of my stand is open and I have holes cut out of the top of my canopy to release any heat from the lights. My tank stays at a steady 77 degrees. I might also mention I always keep my air conditioning on at 72 degrees. It might be cheaper in the long run to run a chiller based on electric charges, or it might be better to run the a/c. I'd try the a/c first and see the expenses associated with it.
