High voltage lighting, and various submersible pumps and powerheads will often raise the water temperature in a reef tank above what is advisable. Chillers are a great option when water temperatures tend to be very high. There are two types of aquarium chillers, in-line and drop-in. As water is pumped into the an in-line aquarium chiller, it is cooled by the internal cooling coils and then return to either the tank or the sump. A major pro of an in-line aquarium chiller is that it can be located away from the tank. Drop-in aquarium chillers, on the other hand, have an external cooling coil which can be placed in a sump. Although they do have to be places near the tank (or rather, sump), drop-in chillers do not require any plumbing.
