    I have a jebo 1.5 m tank and looking to purchase a second nano tank I'm not sure which type to go for. I don't like the fact I don't have a lid on my jebo and all the dust goes in so was thinking of getting a boyu of some sorts with lid a basic plug and play. Would I need a chiller with these tanks ? As the heat would be trapped in

    No lid for tank

    Hi why dont you build a cover for the tank and install fans to let the heat out it is cheaper than a new tank, if you still wants a TL550 you can contact me

    Use fans, I have a boyu fan, cost me R250 and no need for a chiller, but make sure you can auto topup as evaporation will increase
