Recommended Posts

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).

      If not prime,  you will have to use another de-chlorinator, as chlorine  will kill the bacteria. It might still cycle with prime,  but maybe a bit longer. Do you have access to one that doesn't bind ammonia?  No need to change the water  until you see ph drop below 6.5.

      Hi, I'm cycling a tank ATM and I'm using Dr Tim's ammonia, stability and I do have prime. But I was wondering if prime would stall the cycle since the bacteria need ammonia to feed and prime turns it into a.non toxic form?  My ammonia's been pretty high for the past week and I've been trying to do a partial water change to keep the levels down, not going down, no nitrites. But I did just start cycling it last week.

      It wasn't intentional, I was just putting the new shrimps into the tank, the dead shrimp just fell into the tank. I just purchased another 10 crabs today to make it a total of 22, but the shop put a few more in the bag for me, I will be keeping about 10 crabs, the others are for two of my friends, there tanks isn't setup yet, as these crabs are hard to obtain in Hong Kong, the last time I saw them available was over 5 years ago.
