    Voted yes but I have to keep the room cold.. 73 at night 77 in the day when it's 100 degrees here in Dallas. It run my electric bill up close to $400 and I live in a 1 bedroom condo. Also I have to reduce my lighting schedule to 5-6 hours. I have 2 halides in a 6 foot tank.. If I go 3 lights it will need a chiller for sure. Next year I may look in to a chiller to save $$$.

    Mine actually suffers now because it has gotten cooler outside. In the summer the AC is always set at 77 or less. So my tank stays between 80-82. Right now it is like 60s at night and 80 during the day so I try to keep the AC off. The tank will range from like 82-84. Once we get into constant lower temps it will be around a steady 80
