Chiller

Hi,

I'm in a process to setting up my 220g. Reef tank. I'm wonder if I really need a chiller for it?
Please let me know if it a must have?

Thanks
Tan

Has the tank been setup before? If so what was the running temp of the water?

I had to put one on my 450. It was fine in the winter, but warmer weather and MHs....I found one on CL used for 1 season and paid about 40% of the original cost. Tradewinds 1/2 HP. No more worries. Glad I have it now.
