hmm. i live in arizona (so i dont need to say its always hot here) i keep the air conditioner at 70 degrees and the tank stays at 79-80 degrees all the time.when the air conditioner broke down for 3 days i took and put water in 4 2 liter bottles. put them in the freezer and when they were froze i put 2 of them in my sump and just switched out when needed. if your sump pump is not an external pump id believe thats were the extra heat is comming from they can put off alot of heat. it may save you a big head ach to look for an external one.(this is just my quess so take it for the pennies its worth)

I don't see why fluctuation is bad. We always talk about emulating NSW conditions, and a 4-10 degree fluctuation from peak-day to low-night would seem normal to me, and likely preferable to a constant temp.

The middle of tropical waters doesn't really flux that much even from day to night. Your talking 2 degrees probably max and probably less at deaper lengths.
