Mini-Arctica Titanium Chiller Installation Kit
Installation Made Simple
This chiller was relatively easy to put in. It is quiet and now I no longer have to worry about large temperature swings in my coral tank. I am able to keep the water within about .75 degrees of where I set the thermostat. The only downside is that you really cannot hook the chiller up to any pumps or wavemakers already in the JBJ Nano Tanks. It really has to have it's own pump that is strong enough to pump through ten to 15 feet of hose (or how ever long of hose you need). The pump was another $100 on top of the chiller and the assembly kit (probably more than I needed to spend) but it works great. I just used one of the smaller pump for ponds. Also had to buy connectors for the size pipe that came in the kit to fit the new pond pump to the chiller. I am set now and love it.

As Advertised but...
works fine though wish it had come with clamps. the tubing they provide is not standard. 1/2" ID but the OD is something weird, so standard barbs and clamps might not work. I had a difficult time finding a clamp and ended up going with zip ties. didn't want metal as it was partly submerged in my sump area.
