i see.. i think if you are not using MH lighting... its ok not to have a chiller..

for me.. im aiming for a dual T5 tube DIY...
going to get the reflector, eballast and T5 tube soon..

bro.. maybe we could contribute ideas among you, me and Joop then we can design a hood with the T5 lighting

Yaloh..actually just wanna check how much a chiller for a 3FT tank cost...

For the Lighting, i thk the MH does contribute heat to the water so i guess it out of the question for now..
