Thanks for the ideas.... i wasn't going to do sump (closed loop) because I can't drill into my tank. I was planing to have some knobs to adjust hot cold and get them close to tank temp before the water passes through the you think 80 degree water passing through the carbon will be a problem?

Also If we did cold only I'm not sure how slow it would have to enter the tank so there wouldn't be large temp. changes. We plan to use the canister filter to pump the water so we wouldn't be able to slow it down.

Was your W/C semi or fully automatic?

I'll get some pics of our plumbing plans up here soon to get some input.....
