specs: 65g tank, 2 - 3 ft VHO, 2 - 175's, 2 - 400's, in an non airconditioned room. also assume i will be fan happy in the room

i really want to go SPS but i need to figure this out first. with those specs what is your best estimation on the chiller size i will need.

why 4 mh lights - that seems a little overkill.-i used a 1/10 jbj chiller on my old 65 with 2 250de lights.

just because you dont pay for electric does not make it ok, it is way too much light for your tank.
