check to getting a chiller for the tank rather than the ice. It will only be a short term remedy and will cause fluctuations which are not good for the fish. Agree with Hara the phosphates and nitrates/nitrites will cause algea. Do you have bioballs or wheels????

the point is, there is not a temperature problem that needs fixing in this case. 83 max is not too hot. Why worry with it. Attack the real problem.
