    Unhappy

    i have a salt water tank water cooler. if i were to fill a 150 gallon tank with 5 inches of water, then have it so that the plants are sitting on top of a divider supported by pots, then use the cooler at night, would it have the same effect as using a aquarium heater to heat up the tank? the cooler can easily freeze water if given time, and can be ajusted to different power levels.
    would this work?
    thanks in advanced,

    Actually that would be a very good idea. I hear those units are very expensive, but worth the money.

    Hey, what is the brand and model of your chiller? I have condsidered doing a similar setup for Heliamphora, but all of the chillers I've seen have only been able to lower the temperature by around 5 degrees.

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -
