    I don't think you need a chiller, just room temp should work. I have shrimps in all of my tanks, none has heater, and my Neos are breeding in all of them. The only reason some has less shrimp than other is because the fish is in the tank and picking off the babies. Note that these tanks are RO remineralized and is kept under 200 TDS. One tank is a 90G outdoor on tap water and I see a berried female the other day, but I don't see it anymore ... maybe fish got to it.
