Chiller for shrimp tank?
I know from other discussions that most people are using fans to cool shrimp tanks. I am in Texas and even though the house will be cooled quite a bit, tanks usually get 80 to 82 degrees. I like the idea of using a chiller as it would seem more stable/less maintenance than fans, and have ability to drop temp by a greater amount. Does anyone actually use a chiller? If so what kind of set up do you use. I have a 20 long and was thinking of getting a 1/15 hp chiller and putting it in line with a eheim 2213 canister filter. Just curious as to thoughts and feedback.

Will see how it goes.
