Depending on what size tank. Freeze a Poland spring bottle of water and let it float in the tank. That should safely drop the temp. Hope that helps!

Best way a chiller $$$$$$. If not a small fan blowing across the water will work as well but not as fast. On my canopy I had two CPU fan.-One blowing in & the other blowing out. Look up aquarium cooling fan

We should also be asking how big of an aquarium do you have? The fans you should look into is azoo cooling fans...maybe someone who has them will post what they have or might have. The 4 fans system is good for 42g around $45 The 2 fan for 21g is 29g. Overall if you have a small tank I will say get the bigger fan if you can..
