I have taken out my 40 gallon glass tank that was freshwater and replaced it with a 50 gallon acrylic tank. I have an overflow inside the tank as well and will be drilling into the stand with some hole saws.
I bought a sump system for underneath and running an EHeim 2026 I recycled from my planted tank with an Inline heater from Hydor. I have a skimmer and pump as well.
I am told I should consider a chiller (not from the LFS
but my friend recommended I should).
sells Aqua Euro USA 1/10 HP version. Not sure where it is made in.
My question is what is a "good" chiller that I should get? Right now in Southern California, the temperatures are fine (I live in the South Bay, not San Francisco but Torrance). We try not to use AC
at our place so the temp can reach up to 82 degrees for the room.
I will want corals and sea anemones in there as well.
mentioned that I should not put the chiller inside the cabinet. I am not sure if I will have enough room for it anyway. Haven't found any links on Chiller brands out there, where they are manufactured in, and if it's easy to replace any parts that may wear or break.
Any information on this would be great
