    I am just wondering whether there is such a thing as a nano or mini aquarium chiller?

    I like to keep my shrimp tank at 22c but with the summer coming here in the UK, the temperature has already risen to 23.5c. Last summer the average temperature of my other tank was at 26c. My shrimp tank does have some direct sunlight so I anticipate that it will likely get above this 26c average. This is a major problem as these high temperature would likely result in shrimp loses, and expensive losses at that.

    I have looked into cooling fans but I am worried that the tds fluctuations due to evaporation and then me stabilizing the tds with ro water my cause more issues, especially with the more sensitive varieties.

    I am seeing normal sized chillers for around 300 but these are for aquariums of 300 liters+. My shrimp tank is only 90 liters so if there is such a thing as a mini chiller, with a mini price :D, it would be very helpful.

    Yes there are. I've seen one demonstrate on nano saltwater tanks. I'm not sure of the brand or the cost. I'll look around if I find it again I'll post it here.
