lol, I have to top off almost a gallon per day.

but yeah, the fish room is nice and cool during the day, I have fans on 5 tanks in there. Now if I could hook up the fans to thermostats, that would rock. But for now the heater kicks on every hour to heat up the tank. *grumble*

It's the same idea behind a swamp cooler. It's how you can keep a 20g tank very cool. I'll take a picture.

Anyhow, works for me, maybe no one else.
Soooo.... Where did you get that cooling unit for your tank, and was it crazy expensive?

I got it at walmart a few years ago for 10 dollars.

It's just a tower fan with a flat face turned sideways and put on top of my open tank.
