Chiller for 24gal Nano?

Looking for a chiller for my Aqua Pod 24 gal nano. Any suggestions? Was thinking about the JBJ Artica Nano, which is 1/20th HP. I was also looking at the CurrentUSA Prime 1/15th HP.
Anyone use either of these or have any input? Thanks

I use the Current Usa 1/15th hp on my AP24 and it works great.

I just got a used JBJ 1/20. Im testing it int he garage right now. This thing sure is quiet, my hood fans are louder than the chiller.

I use the JBJ Arctica 1/20HP as well. My first unit leaked when I was testing it, replacement is working just fine.

How is the noise level? Mine will be in the bedroom so that is important.

Very quiet. I have mine in the bedroom right next to my bed. The fan in the halide makes way more noise than the chiller and it's pretty quiet.
