great little chiller, but pretty expensive compared to non-chiller solutions featured

Installation and Operation Having monitored a friend's tank throughout the years while he's been on travel, I've been pretty impressed with this 1/10hp chiller. He used it on a smaller tank (under 20 gallons) to keep the temperatures below 74 degrees for the specific fish he was keeping. I've used other arctica chillers in the past, and this was as good a build as all those that I've used. This unit is easy to install and comes with a number of different hose bib connections for various diameter hoses. You will need to provide hoses and hose clamps, but in general it's almost entirely plug and play.


Performance vs. Expectations I've been impressed with this chiller. It's quiet and has worked well over the years I've seen it in operation. It has met any of my expectations for both performance and longevity.


Liked about it This chiller is rather quiet (almost inaudible if you're not listening for it), and doesn't draw a lot of power. It's pretty small, and an attractive piece of hardware considering some of the alternatives. It is easy to operate and the display is clear. In general, there are few complaints with this chiller.


Didn't like There's one design flow on this unit in my experience, and it's common between all the arctica chillers. The display is directly opposite the exhaust, so if you want to see the display you're often going to be placing the exhaust fan against the wall. This is in conflict with the recommended operation, so it would be nice to see the displays relocated to an area of the chiller that makes it easier to place. otherwise, the cost is pretty high considering the performance, but if you don't have another option this is a great chiller.
