Hi,

I'm looking into getting a chiller for my axolotl. Does anyone know anything about the Hailea HC-100A 1/20hp Chiller. The place I'm planning on buying from doesn't have much information on it - I've tried contacting them with no luck so far so I will be ringing them tomorrow if possible. I've done a fair amount of research but can't really find the answers to my questions, so I figured posting them here won't hurt...

The link to the chiller: Hailea HC-100A 1/20hp Chiller Marine Aquarium to 100L | Guppy's Aquarium Products Online

The link to the pump: Hailea HX-6510 Wet/Dry 480L/H | Guppy's Aquarium Products Online

To anyone who knows anything about this particular chiller - What pump is required? I'm not too concerned about flow as I can settle it with a sponge (I've done this for one of my tanks that doesn't have a spray bar). I was looking into the Hailea HX-6510 Wet/Dry Water Pump 480L/H - is this a good pump to use (as I have no idea what I am looking for).

And overall is this pump and chiller good for an 80L tank (20 gallons)? It says it works for 50-220L which is within range but I wanted to check if it is true due to lack of info. I can't really afford a larger chiller but will obviously up size if needed.

Also does anyone know the size of tubing needed to fit these? I can't find any information and don't want to buy the wrong size tubing as I probably can't afford (after buying the chiller and pump..) to buy a second thing of tubing..

Sorry if this makes no sense, I'm in a bit of a rush to buy a chiller as the temperature up here is Brisbane is insane and keeping the ac on all day for my axolotl is way to expensive!!

Any advice or answers would make my day!!!

Happy new year everyone,
Chloe

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
