Last year I did a cost comparison, based on BTU/hour ratings and
couldn't find a peltier (thremoelectric solid state device) arrangement
that would cost less than a conventional chiller.  At that time I
decided that these chips were good for cooling in very small areas --
and would have limited speical applicances for some appliance cabinets
where using cloroflorocarbon gas chillers would be a problem.  But the
price of the equipment designed with these chips had not come down
enough to make them practical for aquarium use.

Hopefully, that is all slowly changing.
