JBJ-Arctica Titanium Chillers 1/10 HP
1/15 Artica Chiller
This is my first Chiller, using it to cool a planted 30 Gal freshwater tank with large angelfish, a large earth-eater and algae eaters. It comes preset at 79 F but I reset it to 80 F and made my own wooden stand to get it up off the floor. It is set up outside my aquarium stand for unrestricted air flow. Highly recommend this one for the smaller tanks, it takes 1/2 inch tubing. A few days after it was cooling, my angels are more robust Also,TransWorld Aquatic Enterprise has been very helpful over phone for advice on cleaning the chiller with chlorine and a extended reverse water flush / disconnected from the tank of course.

best buy ever
Next to some high end water pumps the arctica 1/4 hp and 1/5 hp chillers were the best buys ever. I was losing large sps colonies and losing color in most of the other sps and lps colonies from temperature swings from 77 to 82 degrees F. Within a week both tanks turned around with temperatures ranging only one degree

Great replacement Chiller for a classroom Ocean Tank. Nice and small. Low Power consumption and fairly quiet operation compared with older models.

Whether it's pumps, lights, or shifting ambient temp, this chiller keeps the temp within 1 degree of the requested level. If I dial it in to 75 it will keep it from 75 to 76. Love the product it protects my investment (Reef).
