Aqueon 100101230 First Impressions


You don't have to worry about wide temperature swings with this unit. I have a 10gallon tank that was at 72 degrees. It took about an hour to reach 80f, which is fairly quick. Awesome chiller, perfect for Hydroponics. All seem to vary between 1-2 degrees of each other which doesn't concern me much. The setting always stayed the same. When i installed them, i let them sit in the tanks without power for 6-24 hours.

Aqueon 100101230 Final Thoughts

5 degrees.

The temperature difference was very minor. I hope these suction cups work very well. I am very happy with this purchase. --The heater itself is a bit shorter if your tank is a short one. Seems to keep the temp n the tank fairly regular. It took me a few days slowly turning the dial up to finally get it where I wanted. We received the chiller promptly and put it into use.
