    I live in Limpopo and it gets hot - so does the tank water - I built a cooler using tubing running through ice but this is not very effective as the tubing is too thick making the transfer of the cold to the water ineffective. I am looking for a DIY solution - HELP PLEASE

    He has a BOYU TL-550 "plug-in-and-play"...enclosed compartments and hood, like my small TL 450...best bet would be a Fan blowing directly on the glass...that's what I did...had 2 desk fans...until I started freezing small plastic bottles and popped them in the 1st compartment...

    I have seen guys cut holes in the hoods and mount fans in them worked well but only if you are willing to mod the Hood
