Do you run multiple chillers in the same tank?

  • With many who run sensitive species, having a backup running in the pipeline or having two units that (if something were to happen to the other) could keep the tank going under sub-optimal conditions, do you run two chillers or only one?

    Have you ever seen anyone personally run two (minus sea attractions, parks, etc.)?

  • No, I’m sure big tanks do just for the sake of it - but for anything less than 100 gallons or so I think it’s a bit overkill and forcing two coolers to turn on/off so frequently, probably lowers the lifespan of the units a bunch.
