Chiller but 24 is about average so a few degrees off won't cause any problems as long as its not dramatic

Maybe get a cheap fan. Does the water smell? I think if it was just one day it should be fine. Probably cloudy because the salt is still dissolving.

I wouldn't worry about it, it should be fine. If the water was still for 3 or 4 days I think it would smell foul and wouldn't be good to put in the tank.
