"Gigantic News for Nano Hobbyists!

Enhancing the Nano-Experience
JBJ introduces the revolutionary NANO & MINI Arctica Chillers! Finally, there is a REAL long-term solution for heat concerns in Nano environments with amazing cooling capabilities beyond thermal-electric and fans, that produce less than minimal results.

The Arctica Chillers are offered in (2) models: The Nano-Arctica handles up to 25gal & the Mini-Arctica handles up to 40gal aquariums. Don`t be fooled by the smaller size. These are driven by energy efficient 1/15 Hp compressors that can drop temperatures beyond anything comparable in the market!

A Tradition of Excellence
You can be rest assured that this smaller compact version incorporates the same high performance and reliable day to day operations as our # 1 selling aquarium chillers, commercial chillers, and custom OEM projects with the premium Arctica branded name.

Screening Process
All chillers require clean air flow to achieve optimal efficiency, we`ve now made it easier with a removal screen for quick and easy cleaning.

A New Generation
The industry`s first Nano Chiller that utilizes a nano compressor for maximum cooling capacity. The Arctica Nano & Mini chillers simply put, OUTPERFORM thermal electric/peltier equipment since it utilizes R-134-A refrigerant gas to drop temperatures with ease. Truly the BENCHMARK of mini chillers!

Quiet... Please
We know noise is a concern, so we`ve designed the chiller with that in mind. The Nano & Mini Arctica Series have the lowest noise and vibration level in its` class.

Dial In
Is equipped with an integrated analog temperature controller and probe with a +/- 1°F differenece from the set point. Simply turn the dial to your desired temperature setting and our controller will do the rest.

Temperature Setting Range: 73°F–81°F

Stay Alert
Controllers are equipped with a malfunction ALARM system. A visible LED signals any problems with the chiller`s performance.

Style & Elegance
Designed for in-home use, with a contemporary style and luxury finish. An added welcome to any room in the house without the commercial look.

My solution!

Comments: This thing works perfectly so far. You must buy the installation kit since it ships with no hook ups at all. I have a 24 gal Aqua Pod and the installation was quite easy with the kit. The hoses/plastic tubes fit exactly into the right and left extreme-inputs in the rear of the hood. Just make sure that you push the hoses all the way into the plastic tubes! I have the intake going into just above the sponge filter and the water flow is going thru the little slats and into the tank. I had some trouble finding out about this, with no help from either the Marine Depot site or the JBJ site. But it does work and doesn't seem to disrupt filtration, although I do have an addition Current in-tank filter. So far, it keeps my tank at exactly 76 degrees. It goes on and off. Requires a pump to push the water thru it. None of this is explained on either site. I use the pump that came with the Aqua pod. I have my heater set into a different electrical outlet. It has gone on when the temp is below 76. It hasn't gotten THAT hot out here either since I got the chiller yet, so I can't say how it will work, but so far so good. QUIET! I don't even know when it's on. Rather large unit but just does the job. My fish are loving it, even if they don't know just why. I didn't want to spend the $ either, but this thing just works. It is my solution. Shipment from Marine Depot was very fast, but then I am in Southern California which is where they are located. I will update if it doesn't work at high temps. But so far...
