IceProbe Aquarium Chiller By Coolworks small tanks?

Had anyone had any experience with these. I think I'm going to need one this summer my living room stays warmer than the rest of the house and my temps are at their limits as it is. I will have to drill a hole in my sump area to do this that does not thrill me.

I heard they work great on small tanks. I rememeber reading that the IceProbe can lower a 10 gallon 8 degrees F. What size tank do you have?

So at 15 gallons, look for the chiller to drop your temp a little over 5 deg F. HTH

I have a bit over 30 gallons of water and the ice probe is barely able to move it. I wouldn't expect more than a couple of degrees with 15 gallons.

On it's own, the probe couldn't handle keeping my 30 gallons under control. A fan directed at the surface of the sump is actually more effective for me.
