    This is a great thread with new information and fresh ideas. Thanks to all for participating. For some folks who live in cooler regions, keeping a cold water tank might be a lot easier.

    One thing I have been noticing with new coldwater keepers is that with a lot of the warmer places like CA, AZ, FL etc, a lot of people have central A/C and are keeping their houses at a stable temp year round. So if you keep your house cool already, around 70F for example, then you only gotta chill the water 10-15 degrees to be in temp range :D

    That has to help. What size tanks do you have at home by the way?

    I have a 140 gallon tank that could be ran as a stand alone but it is plumbed into our holding system in my garage. I also have a 7.2 gallon nano tank. I just shot a cool timelapse video of that system the other day, its a little funky but pretty cool ;) Here's the link to it on youtube:

    What a fantastic Nano! That looks like a hungry tank. :)
