Default chiller requirement

I have an intend to purchase a chiller. Told by LFS that a 1/10 chiller from Arctia can do the job for a 4ftX1.5ftX2ft. Arctia 1/10 hp can cool up to 130 gallon of water
I need advise from any brother whether 1/10 hp is adaquate or under power. Thank

go to www.jbjlighting.com
there's a calculator to help you choose the correct chiller.
a tip : try to get a chiller rated 1 level higher than you need if your budget permits.
this will save you lots in the long run as the chiller does not need to run as often to get to the desired temp.

for jbj just get the same one as they suggest will do. cauz if u get one rating bigger, it's a overkill

for small tanks maybe but for tank 5ft and bigger, it really brings a smile to my face when i receive the power bill.
