Another solution that,while pricey, is a win win for you and your tank. An air conditioning unit. That's what I plan for this summer. Kinda help me help them lol and its much cheaper than a chiller

I have central air so it doesn't cool the tank that great. And a chiller is a bit much. I can probably find a way to divert my air up there but it wont look pretty. Lol

Yea you don't really need a chiller unless you live in the desert and its well over 100 degrees 9 months out of the year lol. Even then, I've seen videos on making them out of those mini refrigerators. Saving you from the $700 price tag of a chiller. And ronk, do what you gotta do lol
