Rep: Tasha92 is an unknown quantity at this point
Lightbulb Hello! Temperature advice?

Hello all! I'm in the research phase of pre-axolotl ownership. For the past 4 weeks I've monitored my 55 gallon's water tempature. It stays roughly between 66-68F. Would fans on top cool it down to a safe level since it's such a large tank? I have been looking into diy chillers also. Anyone with experience using a diy chiller? Fans on a tank that big? Any other suggestions to cool the tank besides the ice bottle trick?


(Tank is cycled, 2/3rds of the way full, no lid, a few live low light plants, sponge filter/air pump for a 60gal, and sand bottom ~I plan on getting 5"+ axies or rescuing.. I've been looking on Facebook and it seems they are easy to find as adults also)

Default Re: Hello! Tempature advice?

Hey! A fan should work well, and you have time to see if it works enough. It isn't as good as a chiller but will do until you can sort out your DIY one. Someone else can help with that :)
