My fan will keep my res. approx. 5 to 6 Degrees cooler then without. So the naysayers can stuff it. You can buy purpose set ups for aquariums, they just clip over the lip. Although they work great I had to diy mine to fit the cover of the res.
Your setup is clean. Mine is hodge podge and not very elegant.

It makes perfect sense that it would cool the water,, especially if there is a bubblier in the tank and the air going through the line is below the temp in the tank as the tiny bubbles or air are absorbing the heat as they are coming up through the water the warm air is then being removed from the top by the fan so it dosen't provide an insulating layer of warm air.
Some people just are not capable of thinking and unless they are sold and told by a company that something will do something by the printing on the box then it won't work.
I had a 6 inch round stone in my res. at one time, but I was using Z7 and it would foam up at leave a calcium like coating on everything. It was affecting my float valve so I S canned it. My chiller was $400 not to mention the energy costs which is a big deal. My fan was $20. It definitely works out

I learned a long time ago that: We are usually our own worst critic!
The thing is your doing it, also having an interest, and lets not loose sight of one fact,,, how many can claim to have grown a 1 pound plant.

This is evolution, third in line. Each gets a little neater thats for sure. You should have seen the first, it was a plumbers nightmare at its best.

Makes no difference as to what you grow in (looks wise) don't we all strive for that one pounder at least once? For me I think growing only one maybe two would be the way to go. More room , more light distribution. I need more light period to make that happen but papa needed a new chop saw instead so that will have to wait. One makes me happy but the other makes me money,ha ha.

Never disregard the importance of a chop saw. Even if you're just a weekend warrior and never use it, a man needs a good saw. That reminds me... I have a table saw that needs a new home. I love it, but it's not exactly a petite flower. I use it once a year. It's one of those things... when you need it, it's cool, but I never need it. I NEED a new bandsaw. A nice Laguna would be cool. But I'd never use it. Do you see the pattern?

I ditched the z7 as well, same problems with the foam leaving behind mineral deposits. It never really seemed to clean anything in the rez, it gets just as dirty just as fast with or without it so why waste the money eh?

I just rehomed an old table saw to my younger brother. Mine currently holds the sliding miter saw and I have to move both to use them. I need a bigger garage haha.

Boy do I know that feeling, Way too many projects on the go and no where near enough time. This chop saw will earn its keep. Just built a new bench to house it. Took me many years but I'm slowly getting organized. Retirement slowly approaches. lol

So jealous.

My next project is pulling the top end off my car to do some fact finding. My wife and I JUST prioritised the projects. I made sure the car topped the list.
