You could try a chiller, or if you can't afford that you can have a fan blow into the tank.

I saw one at a Petco, but I don't know if you'll see one where you live though.

There's one in the classifieds for sale right now. A fan isn't going to help if your house is above 65... and floating ice wouldn't be possible either, since you do have to sleep and such.
