    Hi all,

    Please assist - I didn't put this into the urgent column, seeing as my tank is still in the early stages of maturing. :m85:

    Due to the high heat of yesterday, my tank's temp was running at 29.2. It dropped down to 28.8 this morning. Is there a way I can bring down the temp to about max 26 without having to go through the very expensive route of buying a chiller?

    Or if there's someone out there with a small second hand chiller (for my Boyu TL550) ;), please let me know.

    Another problem I never had while staying in East London... :m55:

    Best and quickest options on a TL550 is to get fans. It will push up your evaporation, so you will end up adding RO twice a day. For Christmas wishlist, put an ATU on there....
