Tank Temperature


Recommended Posts

My tank temp had rosed to 31c after I put my RIO32 for my skimmer, ATman return pump and a pump for my FD in the sump, I am not using any chiller, any bro out there can advise is there any way to bring down the temp.

If I change my ATman to eheim, will it help???

if u do not intend to invest in chiller then fan is the next best alternative...

nowadays 2nd hand resun chiller are nt too expensive... if u like little hassle u may like to consider a chiller? cos who knows u may go into corals! =]

Hi Bro,

The prob is with atman... i used this before and had gave me temp prob too....

would be better if u change to a better pump... Mount a fan direct to the hood will bring down the temp by 1-2 degree... (dependant on the ambient temperature of your room too..)

i'm using a singular fan for my 3x1.5x1.5, bought it at yishun (aqua star) for abt 20 plus..have been running for many mths....all u need is some cleaning of the fan to prolong it...i used to have those four-in-one type bt they will fail one by one and is not as easy to maintain as my current one... my 2cts worth..

For those who are successful in bringing down the temperature using fan only, is your tank enclosed in a build-in cabinet or open?

Mine is open top, no hood that is enclosed. Using a single fan and can maintain the temperatur from 27-28.5 degress Celsius. :lol:

my singular fan lasted longer than the 4-in-1..n is def easier to maintain...just remove 4 screws and remove the wire and then clean the blades with plain water and fix back e wire and screws...wala...done..but u can't really do these with those 4-in-1 and 6-in-1s... n those hwo have tried both types..i suppose they agree that singular unit is much more durable...

Talking abt sound from the fan, it there any way to reduce or any soundless fan selling outside???

Most fan will generate some noise as the blades rotate cut thru air and vibration travel. Unless you add a rubber / silicone sheet to act as a damper. Its will reduce some noises. Just my 2 cents.
