    Just bought a 24G nano cube from Dorry pets that I want to setup in Jan.

    Now I'm wondering if it's possible to set up without adding a chiller etc (I live in JHB)

    Obviously a chiller is ideal but I just want a small
    contained tank without all the extra equipment.

    Think this is possible? If not I might just sell this nano before even setting it up...

    Hi Matt,

    I tried running mine without a chiller, but the temp went up to 31. Mine is 130l, so I think yours will be even more difficult to keep cool.

    I am running a Byou of 128l and last summer the temp went up to 29 degrees. Then I just lifted the hood a bit so that fresh (cooler) air come into contact with the water and that the hot air can escape. For me that was sufficient and the temperature came back down to 27 degrees.

    PS: I must add that my house is nice and cool during the summer months (often cooler inside than outside :))
