    just thought i'd share my diy build with you fellow reefers
    my tank is a boyu hs60 which comes standard with a metal halide and i was having temp issues especially with the halide an the crazy weather we've been having in durban.
    So i removed the back sump cover and install 4 pc fans

    had a piece of perspex lying around in the garage. cut it ti size

    used 2 brass hinges an stainless steel nuts an bolts (to prevent corrosion)

    measured an cut out holes

    test run

    installed 4 pc fans, transformer an a stc1000 controller. works like a charm. even on the hottest days my temp doesn't go above 26.5 degrees

    Hi
    All 4 are blowing into the tank an the air escapes Through the feeding hatch
    I thought there wouldn't be much to extract since there is so much air
    Blowing into the tank.
