Heating is what costs the money in the winter


Just the pump alone use 1kw

The pumps are massive and generate a lot of heat on there own

I have 2 kw of heater in the sump but the pump heat the tank also and in the summer what little we have in the UK the tank will boil past 96 so I control the heat with the amount of fresh water I pump in

In the summer I pump about 400 gal per day of fresh water this keeps the temp at 84

In the winter I turn the water down to 200 gal per day and it stays around 82 but the heaters do come on at night

Hi T1KARMANN how are you doing?Great to see you on here You may or not remember me from fishcrazy I used to keep stingrays but unfortunately had to rehome them due to me shed rotting away Got a new shed now but decided against rays as me tanks were not big enough so now I am dabbling with planted tanks
By the way your tank looks AWESOME as always

Wow, amazing! Are the rays friendly? The ones I have been around SW have funny personalities and swim all around you for food!

SUPER cool
