    Hi all

    Looking to get a chiller for my 500L mixed reef. Any advice on

    1. Where to buy,
    2. Which brands are the best/trustworthy/best supported
    3. Do all chillers alho perform heating function?

    Am currently looking at the hailea range I saw on @tewaterboy 's website. Idol marine has Teco range but they seem double the price.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated

    Morning I have a hailea on my 620L system and it does it's job properly, keeps my temp under 27 on hot days, and I'm running 2*250W halide.

    I found mine in the for sale section at half price, so have a look there, there are alwys good bargains and leaves a bit of cash in the pocket

    there are some good deals on the for sale section.. got mine from there too. i got a sun sun chiller and so far no problems, but that's probably because i haven't used it yet. if you wanna by a new one look at Jungle Aquatics online shop as well, they sell Halea and the prices seem good.

    On this same topic

    There are also Boyu Chillers

    In SA seems if you looking for reasonably priced goods
    It's either Hailea or Boyu( teco is twice the price)

    Anyone comment on the difference between Boyu and Hailea

    In terms of
    1. Quality and Reliability
    2. Noise levels
