I ordered that too and think he will have to refund me, but it has been 5 days and he still has not responded to my messages..

Update, got the aquatek 4 fan unit.... Not that impressed.... Does cool, but I think I will be using it on the 10G, does not disrupt the water enough for a 20 I think.... have the one like nick coming in Wend of next week from a guy in CA

I found what seems to be the same model as that BayE seller has listed in the photos. It's an UpAqua fan, says suitable for 15G tanks though.? Sounds pretty loud too.

The seller hasn't responded to me yet either might have to file a dispute.

hmm i wonder if this may be useful?
Lux WIN100 Heating & Cooling Programmable Outlet Thermostat - Amazon.com Lux WIN100 Heating & Cooling Programmable Outlet Thermostat - Amazon.com

i know it's not for underwater but im sure the ambient room temperature will be a decent gauge also for what your tank's temp will/should be?

i was thinking about making a DIY temp control using this one: http://www.pexsupply.com/Ranco-ETC-1...ncludes-8-Cord

This thread is going to come in handy. My Aqueon Evolve 2 was 83 degrees when I got home from work today. And it wasn't really that hot outside. I wonder how much the internal pump heats up the water. Gotta fan on it for the time being.

The cooling fan speedie recommended he had someone pick up for him over seas works great. I am going to buy 6 more for my tanks, they push some air and it is aimed right along the top

I tried to warn you the aqueon ones were a waste lol, sorry they didn't work any better for you. But at least the ones Nick advised work good. I will be sticking with the $10 Walmart clip fans, not the prettiest, but they work great.

I am using something similar and it is doing well. I had a problem when turning it off at night because the water temp would rise, but I'm leaving it on all the time now.

Glad you like them Steve. I love these fans. Wish I would've gotten more.
