Most fish and invertebrates are cold-blooded animals, meaning their body temperature is the same as the water surrounding them.  This makes regulating the water temperature in your tank very important.

Adam's stocks a full line of heaters and can help you choose the right one for your tank.

The number of heaters you need depends on the size and shape of your tank.

Chillers on the other hand help regulate the water temperature by cooling the water which is helpful in areas without air conditioning.  Avoid all tank temps above 84 degrees.


Tips & Tricks
Check your tank's temp twice a day.

Most saltwater tanks should be between 78-82 degrees.  Some fish and corals may require more exact temperature needs so ask Adam's before adding any new critters to your tank.

Make sure to place your heater in the tank close to the highest area of water circulation to optimize the heating convection.  You can also consider adding a heater in your sump.

Place your tank in an area that avoids direct sunlight and is away from heating/cooling ducts.  Open the hood covers on hotter days to allow more heat to escape.

Use an aquarium hood or cover to minimize tank temperature fluctuations.
