Hi all,

Like to enquire of the very common used product - water heater... I know the general use for this is of course.. to heat up the water to a desired temp, but can it do the opposite to cool down the water?

Due to our hot humid weather, and esp ard my area, my tanks reach ard an 28-32 C, but what I like to do is to reduce it to ard a cool n nice 24 C for my tanks, other thn gettin a chiller for each tank or installing air con in my living room or puttin in ice cubes... any ideas?

What I like is to have a long term situation n some r either too expensive or too short term (solutions s mentioned above) so was thinkin of the heater or ... up to any solutions our members might hav??

anyone??

Thanks

A Water Heater ... as its name implies .. IS A HEATER. So most doesn't "cool down the water temperature" as u want it to be, unless the product says otherwise. what happens if the water temp is higher then you preset heater temp? It simply turned itself to OFF mode .. .. .. ..

Long Term? Cheap? Simple? Good = Mcdonald Double cheese burger..

Airconditioning if you have 1 in the house is good alternative that most of are looking for options choose to ignore. ITs one of the BEST option available in singapore to bring the temp of the water down. I.E. If you have a lot of Tanks. It beats having a chiller for each tank. Again, if you wanna save money.. forget it.

We will run a heater product review later, unlike discus, heater is generally used for treatments therefore any safe product is actually good and doesn't really make a difference.

a HEATER is a heater so how can it lower temperature.??????????
Is like buying a kettle and expect it to turn water cold on using it!!!!!!!!!!
I think you should do away with the word heater here and rephrase it to how to lower temperature in our tropical climate to upkeep our fish or something of this nature.

Hi,
To answer Matrix Q, I wanted to keep my fishes in good condition, I believe that that if the temp is around 24-26 C, that shld b optimum.. whereas given our local conditions, my tanks r usually ard 28-30 C, and more so on hot days/nites.. tat cld lead to more bacteria or any other probs..
