<< I've had some people tell me of simply buying a used freezer and coiling
much hose inside it as possible and then pumping the water through it and
adjusting the climate controls and flow rates. It would be worth a try as a
commercial chiller will run you several hundred dollars. I bought a used one
thinking I could save some $ but it had lots of trouble and I ended up
getting a new one. So far, it works great and efficiently chills 75 gallons
down to 55 degrees without much strain even in the summer.

Keep us posted on your progress please.
Do you have much trouble with condensation on the outside of the glass in an
aquarium kept at 55 degrees?
