Rented house

I currently have a 60g frag tank in my garage I rent the house and am limited on options when it comes to renos. I did a DIY chiller but it's not cutting it. Any ideas on how I can cool my temp in a garage in Florida? Tango Mike

I use a fan and a screen top to allow as much evaprative cooling as possible. That should supplement your chiller well plus add some surface agitation.


70 gal w/ 15 gal sump. 1 flame wrasse, 2 a. occelaris, 1 Bangaii Cardinal, 1 midas blenny, assorted CUC, 1 brittle star.

Thanks Mike. I have some fans on order for surface cooling. My evaporation is about a gallon per day. Right now I dose kalk in top off but eased back on how many scoops.
