You could try putting a small fan above the tank blowing across the water surface. I think a chiller would be a bit extreme for such a small tank. Welcome to AA!

i doubt the water will heat up that high, just keep it out of direct sunlight

I believe he is saying the water is already 82 Leo, not the temp outside. It is probably WAY hotter than 82, it's 85 in Tampa this morning.

oh well 82* isn't that harmful to your system but you can always try putting ice cubes in the water to keep it cool. just place the cubes in a ziplock baggy so the fresh water doesn't get added to the saltwater
