that fan will definitely work, I kept a $15 four inch computer fan on my 65gallon with 30 gallon sump, blowing hot exhaust air from the T5 fixture, down onto the water. It lowered the temp 4 degrees and would be more effective if the hot exhaust was cooler. The cooling fan was set up in the canopy to vent the fixture, I didn't set it up to cool the water. That was a secondary bonus. I now feel evaporative wind chill is much more cost effective then chillers.

Been contemplating on buying this little chiller for my 20 gallon. well does it do the job?

I would pick up a inkbird temp controller i use it on my 3.5 gallon tank which pretty much every heater over heats and it works great i put a usb fan hooked up to the cool side.
