I'm busy researching and planning out my future seahorse aquarium, I have a lot of great ideas and I'm remembering a lot of seahorse and saltwater knowledge I had forgotten. It's been a fantastic experience so far.
One thing I can't seem to get a solid answer on is temperature control, at least for my idea.
My idea is, why couldn't an aquarium have a heater AND a chiller? My thinking is, the heater and the chiller could each be attached to a temperature control device. In theory, the temperature control device would switch on the heater or chiller depending on the temperature need.
This might sound like a strange idea, but my home's temperature isn't steady because we don't have central heating/cooling. Unfortunately this is typical of Japanese homes, so the temperature of our home is very much influenced by the changing of the seasons and how well the one-room air conditioner feels like working. Summer's are brutally humid and hot, and winters are mild but quite chilly.
So I thought for the best success, I might invest in both with temperature control devices set to the same temperature. Has anyone tried this??
