heat

Postby railinsp » 2006-06-19 12:45

heat from fluorescents is not much but when hood is on top of tank glass it will efect the temp.. Now in colder regions thats not a problem but where I am in SothCarolina we don't need the extra heat. So I took a 1 x 4 board and made an riser that lifts the light hood of the tank 3 1/2 " Going to try to up load couple pictures. I haven't painted them yet so you could see better

Good idea... same thing i do for my 4ft (actually i just bought lights which were on feet :P ) what about putting a piece of wood across the front or the back which will be painted white on the inside to prevent light loss?

Thats a good idea there. I have the same problem with overheating of the tanks here in Kentucky in the summer. Keep us updated on how its going.

Hmm - what about adapting a small fan to cool it down?
I was talking with a few people who use a similar system - in the raise-blocks they've installed a small computer fan.
Just blows the heat out from under the lights, away from the tank.

Usually used in Amphibious tanks and marines - but I can't see why it can't be used here.

You can pick 'em up pretty cheap.

I dont take my heaters out but I do turn them way down, its been so hot here that Ive had my air on so my tanks seem to be cooling down a bit and using lots of ceiling fans too.

To reflect better instead of white you can use aluminum foil and a spray adhesive, duct tape (the shiny metalic stuff, not the grey "fix-all" kind) or mirrors. Other things, mirror back tank background or heavy duty chrismas paper (I got 3 rolls for $2 after Christmas, it is the kind used to decorate a door like a present/package). In the US Walmart has clip on fans for about $7. Also, Drs. Foster Smith has a reasonably priced chiller for $399 or up to 130G tanks. Says its accurate to +/- 1F. The heater shouldn't turn on if water temps are at or above set Temp.

Just a follower on project of heat from lights I have painted the risers black and I'm keeping tank heat between 78-80 degrees, before it had gotten up to about 82 degrees. going to attach a pic. taken with out camera flash just tank lights and i belive I have enough light.
By the way we have had some 98 deg heat this summer.
