Using parts of a small fridge would do the trick if you have the knowhow

Lionfish def have ginormous mouths, mines pretty passive, just follows me around when im near the tank. They have no problem swallowing fish that are of comparable size to them. Volitans can reach 15", fdl's about 7-9 I believe... so even a fuzzy would be capable of gulping a clown or other similar fish in a heartbeat

yup. i've seen people try all sorts of things...running a length of tubing through a container of liquid, by itself, different types of tubing...no one was successful to date. the electric cost was much greater, the unit was harder to regulate. in the end it was easier to just spend the 4-500 and get the chiller.

Id just use the compressor itself to chill a radiator that the tank water goes thru. But yeah easier and safer to buy one. nice project to do if you had that parts already.

I still have the lights off in the 55g, but the fish refuses to come out. LOL Almost had a picture just now but my camera battery died. hehe...I will try to get one soon.

How long should I give this guy to get adjusted? He was hiding at the LFS too kinda, he came out when the fish guy guy shut down the tanks light. I don't wanna stress the big guy out so I figured I'd give him a day or two to get used to the tank. I also haven't seen him eat, this worries me. Almost every single fish I have ever gotten has eaten on the first day. :-(

I'm probably being overly paranoid on this guy since I lost the first one I tried those many months ago. But any sugggestions would be helpful.

Thanks everyone for continuing to follow along

What do they eat? I've been reading up on garlic for picky eaters.
