    We’ve all been there, I couriered my first nano from Cape Town in 2008, cost me a lot more than I should have paid for it, but was so keen I couldn’t wait for a Jhb deal.

    So after the fans......

    Temp is now sitting at 25 instead of 30 degrees celsius!!So I am very pleased.

    Going to add a an STC 1000 to help control the temp.

    Fairly easy.
    Bought 2 x 12 Volt Fans ( plastic housing ) 80mmx80mm
    1 x Power supply and connector.
    2 x plastic fan covers.
    8 black bolts ( and stainless steel/silver nuts)
    Drilled/cut 2 holes with a holesaw.
    Fit the fans and covers (by driliing 8 small holes )one blowing into the tank and one out of the tank,so creates flow of air over the water surface.

    BTW this size fans fits perfectly without modifying anything else.
    I am sure with you Zetlight you would have more space than I have.
