I was curious about yours because I actually made one and it works! I don't use a tank though, but I did make a box as well! Haha, it's inspired by Jeremiah harris. It's made with 2 3ft wire shelving units put together with foam boards on the sides and a plastic drop for the front. I use my peltier unit to cool it. With my lighting, it can easily get to mid 90s F, but with my cooler it keeps the temps down from the high 70s F to maybe 82 F when its a really hot day. At nights it can get down to the low 60s, but it is summer and it's only been getting to 65.
Peltier units can work, but it all depends on the build and the parts you use. Moreover, if you can't cool the hot side enough, then it'll warm up your cool side and it won't be as cold as you want. I'd rather explain this on a different topic though since this isn't mine lol
