    The only thing that would worry me is making such big adjustments right before you go out of town. I typically don't like to make any changes within the last two or three weeks of me being home, unless it's absolutely necessary.

    Having said that, if you use the hose running through the fridge idea, buy plenty of extra tubing, roll up as much as can fit in the fridge, and use a relatively slow flow rate. You've just made a small tank chiller.
    Thanks Cody
    My plant is start next week and have 2 week period for test. Could you give more information about tank chiller.

    I wouldn't recommend using the water hose that he does, as I have heard it might potentially effect your corals long term. The vinyl tubing is much more expensive, but shop around online. You can find it at reasonable prices. Also, your tank is large so it may only effect your tank for a couple degrees, but since you're running the fridge anyway, it's just an extra bonus.

    Any updates on this???

    I was on vacation and had only apex fish feeder (feeding pellets); Amazingly my female anthias survived without frozen food for more than 10 days.

    I built mine using a mini fridge, a brs doser, a stirrer, and some solenoids. I use frozen food in a beaker. Has worked well, although I donít use it all the time. Happy to share more if anyone is interested.

    Did you make this pump? If so, how did you do the dual head peristaltic?
