Starting Reef Tank Without Chiller

Recommended Posts

Would it be possible to start one if using LED lights and fans for cooling and if the tank is not in AC area?
Hi bro, I used to have a two foot cooled by a fan. I was able to keep BN, Shrooms and GSP. You have to constantly top up water though.

Interesting. So question here is, without a chiller, using fan and using LED lights, how likely it is for the temp to go over 30/31C?

Not really much. My temp was maintained at 28.5-29 using fans for a two foot. To be fair, my LED were very low temp. How big of a tank are u thinking of using it on?

I am thinking of just a 2-3 ft tank as well. My concern is if start without chiller, then after that realize the temp gets out of control (affecting the lifestock/corals), then either need to take down the tank of put in the chiller.
