The recent hot weekend got me to thinking of a "cleaner" way to keep my tank cool. Fans seem to work, but they're "messy" and evaporate a lot of water. I'm not sure they'd work if the weather got much hotter either. And of course, my wife doesn't like all the bulky fans, cords, power strips, and flotsam strewn about. The reef tank is on thin ice now (pun intended).

So, I've always wanted to try a chiller but they're just outside my budget. I've seen used chillers selling for prices that *are* within my budget in other parts of the country.

So, I thought I'd see if anyone out there has a used chiller to sell. My tank is 55gal so the smallest size is right for me. What's my budget? Well, under $300 for sure. I saw a few 1/15HP units go for $115 to $250 out there on the net. Can't hurt to see what's out there in Corvallis/Willamette Valley.

Here's hoping we don't see any more extreme temps this year...

I have a 1/10 hp sealine platinum series i have thought about getting rid of. Only issue is the thermostat doesnt work right. I have yet to call the manufacturer because it is too small for my system so why bother. It says the water is always 100 degrees and never shuts off. You can get around this by getting a cooling thermostat, or see about getting it fixed. Chills really well. Thinking about $120

I have a controller (Digital Aquatics). I think I could use that and not worry about the thermostat. No?

If so, I'm interested. We should arrange a meet.
