Hello!

My octo tank (Red Sea reefer 250 (66 gallons all in) is all set up and fully cycled (been cycling for a while, I set it up in July and just added a clean up crew/future octo snacks). I have kept saltwater for several years and I have a Red Sea 900xxl (~240 gal) and that’s how my 250 freed up about a year ago.

I live in Paso Robles and have seen ruby octopuses in the tide pools nearby so my plan is to get one myself (I’ve read up on it and I can take one as a pet with a fishing license, subject to some limitations).

In any event, my question is what size chiller I should get for the tank to maintain 55-60 - assume the room is up to 78 in the summer a few times a year.

Hi your better off going a little on the bigger side! Just in case. Better to lower it than run it full force. Thanks
