    I wouldn't mind that so much if the darned grass would stop growing until I could mow it!! :)

    My chiller has come on several times in recent weeks, late after the halides have shut down

    I do both things, start out with a soda bottle filled with water and left in the freezer. Then just take off the top and let it melt(ro water) and it cools the tank slowly as well as top off my water level.
    When the temp gets really warm I turn on the a/c.

    Blah I was thinking I was lucky, and just about to post saying my temp has not gone up. Then When moving the tank from my coffie table to my new stand(woot) I saw that the temp is now 79:(.

    Darn, I thought I was doing pretty well too until I saw this thread and went and checked. I'm up by 2.5 degrees F. Guess its time to get the chiller running :(

    Mine is up about 3 degrees and that's with
    no lid.
    If it gets too warm I turn on ceiling fan(actually helps)
    open windows and shorten or change the lighting period
    to a cooler time.

    Mine is on the rise as well....around 82...I keep the ceiling fan on in the room and that helps some....down side is the water evaporates a lot faster.....

    Most of you guys should feel lucky, I'm in the UK and our summer seems to only last for a few weeks!
