    Good questions. That aqueon only began to sweat at the bob Moore when it was super packed and humid. So I imagine it might sweat a few days a year. But I don't anticipate it I would imagine a fan pointed at it would dissipate it. And with the aqueon tank you could plumb that chiller into the sump overflow area. Going bigger would be better of course but your 1/15th chiller would not be enough to get a bigger tank into the 50's. I was bringing up the aqueon 8 because you could start now for cheap. I'm a big fan of cooler sumps personally:-P And your Coldwater already lol

    It is such fun off shoot of reefing. I really hope you try it. And some of us have discovered a nano setup that puts you well on your way to it, with the aqueon nano cubes and the Chill solutions thermo electric chillers. Let me know I'd love to help.

    Well the ice probes are only powerful enough to chill two gallon pico tanks to the temp needed. For the 8 gallon setup I run which as gotten fairly warm during my stress test this year (72 with inside temps around 80-84) I used the much more powerful chill solutions chiller. For anything larger I recommend traditional chillers with a rondo temp controller.
