When I went through termite tent, I simply wrapped the whole tank so nothing can fall into the water. put a huge airpump in the backyard and ran ~10ft of hose into the DT for air. Also ran my chiller in the yard and put temporary hoses into sump.

skimmer off. I monitored temperature through APEX. if needed, I could shut off the lights. but the chiller handled it no problem

that was during summer. temperature is great now. but it still gets warm with tent

560gal in the making
