Both. Fully scaped. Why settle? Have your cake and eat it too. Anything less is well less.

They are providing a safe means of doing that. I find no fault charging for a legitimate service. The real thieves are Western Union when you wire money.

The heat needed to change states of matter is latent (or hidden) heat. It does not affect the temperature at all.
Ice water is 32 degrees. You want more ice than water to be accurate.

300 watts on a 40. Man I don't even OWN a 300 watt heater. And I have 75s and 90s.

Not sure if the corners will hold. One thing would be to use a double top plate like you would build a wall with the top plate overlapping the bottom for strength.

The correct way is a mix of ice and water. More ice than water but still a mix. Wait a few minutes and it is all 32 degrees. It matters not if it is touching the ice. In fact I use the thermometer to...

Something I wonder. You all do realize that those same soda bottles are actually designed to hold a liquid. And CO2 right? Kind of exactly what you are trying to do. If that flimsy plastic can carry...

Like I've said I don't calibrate heaters. Ever. I do calibrate my thermometers though. I have a few left from my A/C days and they are calibratable. How? Simple. Put them in a glass of ice with a it...

Being kept informed is really nice. What happens when you're 1000 miles away and can't get in touch with anyone and the temp is on the way down to 60?

Having a controller for all the heaters I have running in the winter would put me in the poor house. ($1 a gallon sale may still do it)

If you have the Apex at 76 then I would run the heater at 80...

One of the reasons I like the two heaters at opposite ends is the middle will usually be a degree or twp cooler. Some fish like the respite from the constant temp.
