Powerheads, pumps, UV sterilizers and high-intensity lighting all add undesirable heat into the aquarium. The CSXC-1 chiller is perfect for nano tanks, hydroponics setups, and aquariums up to 30 gallons (depending on heat input). The same thermoelectric technology used in this device is used by NASA to generate electricity and maintain equipment temperature in space!

  • Powerful - Recommended for tanks up to 30 gallons
  • Smart - Intelligent fan speed control eliminates unnecessary noise
  • Thermoelectric Technology - Directly converts electrical power into cooling power
  • Quiet - No pumps or mechanical compressors

Not bad!!

I have a IM micro 30 and just needed to drop the temperature only a couple of degrees. Which is what this unit is doing! So definitely worth it for the price and it works as advertised.

Works great for nano reefs

I installed the CSXC-1 Nano Chiller and has been running in my Innovative Marine 10 gallon reef tank for 3 days now. I'm pleased with it. My tank was reaching 30C. I set it at 28C the first day and now 27C. The chiller has no problem maintaining the temp at the desired setting. It adjusts the fan speed according to the need during the day and stops by itself at night when room temp is lower and cooling is not needed. Notice that this is not for a large tank. This will work fine in nano tanks (up to 30 gallon according to the manufacturer) and in applications where you only need to the temp a little bit. Easy to set up too. I purchased their optional U-bend tubes and ended up having to cut one of them in order for it to fit better into the return elbow. It is connected in-line with my return pump, which is an Aqueon Quietflow 400. The unit gets a little hot during the day and I can hear the fan when running (in my case most of the day). You can't place the chiller inside a cabinet, it needs to be in an open area so that it can cool down properly. What could be improved (these are not showstoppers -- just suggestions to keep improving)? 1. The temp adjustment knob: I think that it would be great if it had a way to lock it in the desired temperature. It is too easy for someone to move it unintentionally, causing your tank to get to the wrong temperature; 2. They sell an optional wall mounting kit -- I think that the unit could easily come ready for wall mounting -- you are already paying a good amount of money for it; 3. The temperatures marked on the adjustment knob are a little off. You still have to rely on your good old thermometer to know for sure what is the target temperature. I then marked the unit with a permanent marker or post-it tab at the desired position.

Great chiller

This is an excellent chiller for any small tank. It's silent and works perfectly. Set up is easy.
