Hopefully the fan will help, but I doubt it.
You may be surprised. Water cools itself naturally by evaporation. By adding the fans, you will be blowing more air over the water and thus increase the evaporation rate and, in turn, increase cooling. I bet you drop that temp by a few degrees anyway.

What do you guys think of this one?
JBJ ARCTICA CHILLER Model #DBA-075
I've had no problems with my Arctica - there is no controller on it but the price was right. you can see what I use in my sig. I know for a fact that my size can handle a 6deg drop on my 125gal.

They are quiet and easy to clean.

How expensive are these chillers to buy and run? I've always thought they were very pricey in both respects.

I got a good deal on that 1/10 JBJ Artica Chiller. Got it for $315
Fish store was converting to Freshwater. So they where unloading cheap.

The aquamedic titan series is an awesome chiller!! there 1/6 HP ca pull down a 180 over 6 degrees. Plus it has a built in controller so you do not have to buy a heater/chiller controller!!

The Chiller was bought in Cerritos, CA. My boss knew I was looking for a chiller, he called me up from the fish store where he saw the good deal.
I told him to pick me one up. Not sure if they have any left. I can find out the name of the store if you want.
