    That's a great piece of equipment. It sits in ur sump and disrupts the water while a fan cools small portions of it down. Very effective. Black webbing assists in the process.

    It's not on the web. Phuturelab sells them. It doesn't have an off switch but I can assure you that it's not powerful enough to over cool your tank and will work hand in hand with your heater. It will maintain ur temp at 26degrees when a heater is at 26 deg. So actually it just stabilizes the temp. Cutting out external air temps influence on ur tank.

    so this system works basically the same as normal fans over the surface. wont the Black webbing be bad for the tank as food and so on will be stuck in it and looks like a closed system to me. yes i can get it from phuturelab for r1999.
