Recommended Posts

Anyone had experiences with theses?

They appear to just be peltier chillers but premade and nicely boxed up. Any info on them would be awesome.

 

Cheers!

That's exactly what it is. Only for very small, nano tanks up to 20L. I would use it for tanks bigger than that.

Damn, nothing special then. Hopefully fans will suffice.

Nah. You might as well put the cost of this to a real chiller. Or a 2nd hand one.

It will probably cheaper to DIY, those only look good because it has a case/enclose, and the peltier they give you is probably the bare minimum, usual the 12703-12706.

I have two, and it works well with a 16L tank, but the cooler must connect to a 12V water pump, if you connect to a canister output it's too weak.

I'm test a few, and the best is DIY, with 2-3 C1208, 12709 or LBS12706A peltier, and you need a industrial power supply, they computer type power supply will burn out after a few months, peltier only works well, if it the heat side can cool down faster.

My setup is 2, will test with 3 C1208 peltier soon, a copper water block and a blue water block, the silver water block are crap, a PC radiator with a 120mm fan, better if you can 240mm radiator (2 120mm fan), copper water block to connect the radiator to the heat side, blue water block to the cool side ( copper cannot be used for shrimps).

      Only anything smaller than a neon tetra. They are unlikely to catch them however. Bottom dwellers are most at risk. But if your pleco is larger than a neon tetra size, it should be fine. Just keep the Long Arm well fed.

      If you want some special local NT Shrimps, email me aqua.green(at)bigpond.com there are other small shrimps in the top end no one has tried.  If you can get me into Kakadu there are some really nice shrimps on and at the base of the Arnhem Land Escarpment. Many would be good in the aquarium trade.   Kakaducarididae_revision.pdf

      I have a question, I have some new Murray river long arm shrimp, does anyone have any experience about keeping these guys in a tank with fish? What sized fish will they try and eat? (Or better yet successful catch) I also have a new bristlenose pleco in the tank, they're a little slower and placid, will they eat him?

      Great photo, and great to hear that this tank is still going 'OK' for now, hopefully with time it may just settle down on its own? I don't know the answers to your questions but I am eager (as I am sure you are as well) to see what happens next and what the babies look like!   Simon

      Two berried tigers! 3/5 of the tigers are females, so it’s very likely that they bred with a black or red crystal. I don’t actually know what this means or what the mischlings will be? Will the only carry the tiger gene while producing crystals and tigers, or will the babies show fancy tigers markings?   Also, what determines how many eggs a female produces? One tiger has CONSIDERABLY more eggs. The on in this picture has about half as many eggs as the other...
