Cooling temp in tank, fan over sump?

My tank is cycling and temp is about 81 degrees. I was wondering if a small fan over the sump would cool it down a degree or two?

Any thoughts???

Thanks in advance
Jim

Think I answered my own question by doing some searching. Sounds like this will work pretty well. Trying to get to about 79 degrees so the fish will be

Also, many of you say to leave the top off. I am worried about this as with my first tank, I lost a fish (clown) when he jumped out of the tank. Doesn't this happen to you without a top, or did she just not like my tank!

I use plastic egg-crate instead of glass. It can be found at hd in the lighting section. It is a white plastic grid with 1/2 " holes to prevent carpet surfing
