If I went from 3x400 watt SE to 2x400watt DE would this help to lower the temp of the tank. Just lloking for ways to try to not have to buy a chiller. Thanks, TIm

Dropping a halide would definately lower the temp, but will also cut your lighting by 1/3. It solunds like you have a boat load of money into your system already, so a chiller is not an out of line purchase IMO. Even on a budget you might be able to find a used one that will work.

just turn down you ac a little. or do what i do , aim the output of the ac into the tank :). that's the cheap mans chiller.
