I'm currently running a 1.5 FT tank with Eden 501 filter. Using a DIY fan and lowest temp i can achieve is 26 deg.

Can anyone recommend a good chiller that works well with my current Eden filter if i want to achieve 24 deg and below? Was considering iceprobe by coolworks but the feedback seems divided.

Thanks in advance!

you can try finding such chiller of your requirements at petmart.
made in taiwan if i am not wrong. rather small though
be careful as eden 501 is running at 250 l/h?
best if your l/h meets the requirements of your chillers else your chiller will consume more electricity.

i m using the JBJ Arctica Titanium Mini for my 45x26x27 cm shrimp tank... tink it's one of chillers with the lowest working wattage around... approx 50W for 900 BTU... 2yr waranty... :cool:

downside... high price... under $900 :cry: ... and narrow control range, +- 0.3 deg C of set temperature (no manual range control setting feature, unless purchase a separate temperature controller >()... good for temperature stability... but bad for pocket n equipment as frequent intermitent running... runtime jus under 5mins every 17-20 mins, depending on ambient temperature...

hope this helps...
