Wow, that's the old school way to cycle a tank by using damsels. first step I would use is getting rid of all the damsels. Did your tank cycle already? And by just using a raw shrimp or some frozen fish food you could have saved some money instead of buying all the damsels. There really is no need for a UV sterilizer and what type of lighting are you running on the tank? How hot does it get in your house in the summer? These are things that would come into play with a chiller.
