Mine is 79.2-81.4 (just checked the digital). My heaters are set at 76 I think (basically, they are just a backup).

Top offs are always done with freshwater, not saltwater.

Will a little fan drop the temp enough??
Anyone have a chiller? I might as well look into getting one cause if the heat is this high now....it will be worse once i upgrade my lights.
I dont think i need one of those huge expensive ones....

I just have 2 fans doing the work for me. I wish chillers weren't so expensive or I would order one as well. I just can't get the wife to budge on that one.

I will get 2 fans but does it really evaporate that much water daily?

I put my heater on 72, and my tank is still saying in between 80 and 82. It won't cool down and when my tank light is on it goes up a little bit.????

You shouldnt have the heater on??? Try leaving the bottom doors open to allow ventilation ...my temp stays at 78-79 with lights on. Chiller is set to go on at 80 degrees n I have 220 gallon
