Hi Guys,

New to the hobby, I have a question on chiller, how many HP must the chiller be for 4ft x 2ft x 2.5ftht tank? The brand I'm looking at is Arctica.

Thanks in advance.

I think must be comparable to TECO 680 blah. Best is 1/2 HP, although 1/4 can but will run longer hours depend on your heat disperse on your water.

Looking at the data, for Artica brand, 1/5-1/4 is the recommended size. I have this intention to pump the last stage of water from my sump into the chiller, return to the same section and pump back to the main tank. Will this method be more effective in terms of water chilling faster and of cos saving on electrical bills?

      Hi, thank you for taking the time to read through. 
      Whats the Atlantis, Atlantis is what i named my Red Sea Reefer 350. Why name it Atlantis ? Atlantis has always fascinated me. And The Red Sea Reefer being my current dream tank build, the only thing i could think of naming is was The Atlantis. 
      I bought my Reefer 350 second hand from a fellow reefer. The tank was only used for a few months, 5 months to be exact. Well the tank was collected today. And i did the delivery myself. So i guess ill start this thread by writing my experience on how the delivery was done, and what you guys could learn from my mistakes. 
      My friend and i, yes 2 people. We went down to collect the tank, in my van.  Lesson no 1, have more help. Despite the tank weighing 64kg, we had issues carrying it. issues faced was lifting the tank up higher due to the piping, instead of sliding it off the cabinet. Second issue faced was loading it into the van. It was an issue because again of the piping we could not slide it in and had to carefully place it.  Now my van isnt that big. Its just enough to fit a 4 ft tank.  Second issue faced, i decided i did not want to dismantle the cabinet and that we just put it in the van standing. Well it did fit, but due to the size of my van, it was just nice about 5-6 cm away from the door closing in. And the sump tank was just kissing the cabinet. 
      In my opinion, get more people to help. Also have some boxes or cloths to protect the tanks, because when i was driving, there were instances i had to brake hard, and in one of those breaks the sump slide forward and hit the tank. Luckily nothing happened, we stopped over at the patrol pump, got everything placed properly again and put cardboards between them just incase 
      Once the tank was home, it was a breeze to set up. Firstly the previous reefer had already set up the overflow pipes for me. All i had to do was fix the drainage, emergency drainage and return. 
      Now the tank sits, while its Rocks, salts, sands and biomedia come. Also going to do a leak test before filling it up with salt water.
