Hi all.

Am new to Marine setup and hope you guys can advise.

i got a Fluval Evo tank setup and intend to keep corals. Understand that recommend temp for corals max is up to 28 degrees.

But room temp water is already 29 degrees onwards. My tank water temp hover ard 30-31 degrees even on a cloudy day.

Get a chiller better. Used with a temp control. When the temp high the chiller will on when temp low it will off.

If u use fan ur water evaporate n u need to auto top up frequently.

You are at the point of no return! Ha.. if electricity is a concern, then this hobby should be for you bro. Will need a lot of electricity to run other stuffs! Wavemaker, skimmer, blah blah blah.. I tried using the fan initially, but given up. The amount of water TOP up Everyday is just ridiculous

I meant “shouldn’t” instead of should. If you are into marine tank.. just don’t think too much about the electricity! Cost of corals/fishes.. addictives and supplements.. these will be the real killer

Surely will upgrade.. 56litre is too much effort and harder to maintain. Water parameter can change quickly.

Hailea chillers generally worked well for me. Have not used it past 2 year mark though. But while i had it, i didn't have any issues.

Would recommend the HS28a if you getting. Its quieter.
