Hi all, I don't own a SW tank yet, but I'm gathering as much info as possible....
now, I've always seen wonderful and HUGE SW tanks(I'm talking about 800 L and above )....and I always wondered at how they managed to keep the temp stable , do they use giant heaters? and are there any tricks concerning heating giant aquariums? because my dream is to have a huge tank my self....lol, but alas! no money Sad

800 L is only about 211 gallons, not exactly huge but average for a marine tank. Standard heaters work just fine and most people will use several to keep up with the temp requirements in cool weather.
