I am using a cooling pad for the same.

I have seen a clamp led at Buro da's place. The clamp is broken though :( . Anyone know what is the cost of it. Its similar to the eBay one and cheaper than that I guess.
Thanks,
Nilotpal

Nilotpal here are some pointers -

1. You don't need more than a 5w or 10w Led for a shrimp tank. For a 30*18*18 shrimp tank I am using a 10W Wipro LED tube.
2. Rather than activated carbon use ceramic rings/bioballs and if you can spend a bit then go for seachem matrix/eheim substrate as filter media. I use them so can vouch for them.
3. I have a clamp led that I got from Bangalore, I paid 450 for it.
4. As Rahul mentioned try to get hold of a fan - a pc fan will work. It will bring down some temperature :)

Just placed some small tiger barb yesterday. They will move to my bigger tank once I start keeping shrimp. Will start baking soda & citric acid CO2 from tomorrow.

Will upload photo soon.
