    Just noticed today as we have had warmer weather and maybe because of the new light in my fuge the temp has crept up to 27 c. I have a fan on now but i have just ordered a 6 fan unit for the sump area that will hopefully help :) Time for a good clean out of all the dead algae today and hoping i am closer to killing it all :)

    Mine does the same. I just leave door open. seems to help
    The fans I have are poor. so I am going to get upgrade. But if there air around the sump/tank is not replaced from outside.
    Then its feeble trying to cool with fans. that sound right? lol.

    yes as soon as it goes over that will happen. I usually cut the lot in half and give away or throw in nim when its like that to make room for more growth.

    There are holes in the cabinet on the doors and at the back to let air in. I ordered a new 6 fan unit.
