  2. well ocean temps rarly change more than 3-4 degrees through out the year and yes the more volume thing will help it take long to get to that temp but once its there its longer to get down also. but it should help so good planing once a lfs had a display just to the left of there main entrance and the night before a cold fron came in the temp drop from high 70s out side when the chiller was just worried about the MH lights went down to mid 50s at night the tank being just inside the tank temp when they opened the store at 11 am was 68 degrees corals stressed from the sudden change the Fox face, garabladi and the sohal didnt make it moral of the story stable is more important sudden changes more than 2 degree an hour ethier direction is bad for fish and corals
