When maintaining reef aquariums, there happen to be a lot of different issues that can and often do come up that those who own freshwater tanks don’t typically face. And even the issues that they do face can yield much different answers because of the different dynamics.
One of the issues that any aquarium owner faces is a change in the temperature of the tank. Making sure the temperature stays at a pretty constant level is important because it allows your fish to stay healthy.
But, there are differences in temperature change problems in reef aquariums as well as other aquariums.
If a person is having problems with keeping his reef aquariums cool enough, there are some things he can do. This advice doesn’t completely apply to freshwater aquariums because they tend to be too cold instead of too warm.
Anyhow, evaporative cooling is one popular method that many use in order to decrease the temperature in their reef aquariums. Basically, this method simply employs a couple of fans that blow near the water to help it cool down. This will help keep the tank at a comfortable level.
