Does anyone know of any cases of people trying to keep Crystal Red Shrimp in hot climates?

I've know it's possible to keep and breed CRS in hot weather, at least on a short term basis, but long term? I'm considering breeding a large colony of shrimp, and then selecting for warm temperature tolerance. However, I want to gather as much specifics to gauge the feasibility and if it'll be worth it to me.

Ik that prl will breed faster and more in warmer temps. But the down fall is they will have a shorter life span

Here in South Africa people have used fans to cool tanks, but they are more successful in large tanks in cool rooms where the temperature stays lower and the large volume of water reduces the impact of the external environment

I used to keep CRS in a tropical climate that regularly hit past 30’C and the only way to make it work long term was buying a chiller... fans didnt cool the tank enough as they prefer temps of 18’C - 25’C
