Fan ideas for a DIY Digital Temp Controller
I live in the high desert and temperatures reach up into the 110's at times during the summer/fall. I've seen the tank get up to 86 degrees. With a newly set up planted tank there's no way I'm taking the risk of just seeing how it plays out this summer.
I'll be making my own digital temp controller using the stc-1000. I have all the parts on order. I'm searching far and wide for info on specific fans that hobbyists are using for evaporative cooling and coming up empty.
I've ran through a few options without pulling the trigger. My biggest concern is what size fan to get, to cool my 72 gallon bowfront effecitvely. I like the idea of using a regular office type clip on fan, just not sure if that will work best. I also like the idea of using pc cooling fans but trying to figure out how much cfm I need is stumping me.
So any suggestions on a fan set up would be appreciated.
