Freeze some bottles of water and float them in the tank for a while to cool it down. This way you can do it without worrying about chlorinated water getting into the tank as you would with throwing ice cubes in there.

In your case, a fan blowing across the top of the tank may be enough to drop the tank to a reasonable temp.

Ya, fans and ice floated is a good idea. The combo of both is even better.

Is the heat expected to stay for a few days? Or is it supposed to go down??

This would happen in nature as well so they woke just up and die right away, I would do what you can and don't worry too much.

Maybe put the 1 gal in the fridge!! Jk.
