    hey pescador -

    i have never owned a chiller but I have always heard good things about these brands: CSL, Aqua Logic and Aquanetics. I don't think you can go wrong with one of those.

    Check out these fans too:

    Puerto Rico. This Island is mostly rock. The local stuff is what im gona use since im 2 blocks from the beach. I dont know the Regs on Harvesting shippin etc But it has crossed my mind.There are lots of kool critters here too. Their all little guys. The locals Fish it pretty unscrupulessly (for Food), and there is little if no enforcement.:{

    What size tank do you have? A while back I saw requirements for the size of chillers and tank sizes...

    A 90? Cool. I was calling somebody about a 90 the other day - they wanted $150 and that was with a stand! It was sold already though. :(

    Yeah that site has a lot of cool stuff. Those chillers are pretty new, I haven't heard much about them, but I like that micro one!
