Decent for the money
I bought 2 of the 4” fans to pull out air from inside the stand. One has been working for a year. The second stopped working in about 6 months. They work pretty good for keeping the heat out of the stand, but they run continually. I’ve never seen them auto adjust speed as advertised, but my stand might have too much heat in it for them to adjust to a lower speed. Decent buy
Nice little fan
I installed this fan in my stand to vent the sump underneath about two years ago. I think it's important to say that I use it to pull air into the cabinet so that the air that goes thru the fan is from the room before it flows over the salt water. I haven't found another fan that is any quieter although I wish I could.
Great little fan
I purchased this fan to replace a fan in an odyssey fixture. It mounted early in the spot of the old one. It was so quiet I didn't think it was working, but sure enough it works like a champ.
ICECAP REVIEW NOT SO GOOD..
i had a custom build fan tray by Melve's Reef and the fan died in a 1 week on me. When it was working it dropped my temp about a degree or two but I was going get two of them blowing over my sump. I think that these are more for taking HOT air out of your tank stand then lowering your temp on a tank. I will return this and get a new one and see how that goes but I think this time i am going to custom cut so the fan will fit on my Apex Control panel that in my Nano stand and hopefully it will give some sort of ventilation where all of my EB8's are and all of my plugs for my apex.
Okay so after my earlier review I bought a new fan and this one seems to be holding strong now for about a month...no problems...maybe I just got a bad one earlier who knows. I think its really important to try and keep these things as dry as possible. Dont be afraid to widen the holes to use zip ties on them either.
Ahhhh these fans...well there okay. I have had mine installed with sip ties inside my canopy...they never got wet or anything during install and after about 3 weeks the right one is making that "bearings going bad inside the fan sound" You all know what I'm talking about...its really loud at this point with the canopy doors shut and I'm sure is on its way to dying.
I have 2 of these in my canopy. They are very loud!. Going to return them
Worked well then broke
Fan worked for about 9 months then coordoded where one of the wires connects and no longer works. Not for use in salt water environment.
I agree with Kevin's comments
Kevin's comments are spot on. Not sure why it doesn't have an "off threshold". I will look into connecting it to my Reef Keeper also. On a side note, really Rognin? You give it one star rating just because it's imperial dimensions? Reviews are based on the product's performance, reliability, and value. Go online and use one of the hundreds of free converters to see if it's the correct size for your use. If I used that criteria when purchasing a new car I would hard pressed to find one.
would never recommend this fan to a friend
I bought two fans for a 200 gal tank one fan went out the first month the second fan went out after three month. DO NOT BUY
