    Coldwater setup question

    I was just curious, but how exactly does one set up a coldwater tank? Is it just everything else sans the heater? Do you need a chiller?

    Thank you everybody. I will doubtlessly be asking many questions later. The 10g is my first tank ever, and although I have already researched loads I am sure there is still lots to learn. :)
