I used to keep my front lid and back lid open. It dropped the temps down to like 78-79 for me which is acceptable. If you have jumper fish then maybe just keep the back flap open during the day. On a bright note, we dont need heaters. LOL I recently took off the entire hood and am using a 4 bulb t5 over it so I have zero concerns about temperature now.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

help tank is overheating!!!

Thanks Carey for your input... I like the idea to lift the hood up, I actually did it last night and it did dropped to 83.7 but I dont think it is enough.. and the bio cube has a real big top I really dont want to keep It open for long.. got a toddler on a prowl...lol I am a considering a stronger fan, if that is even an option on the cube.
Good thing the night bought down the temperature to 81.4.. still I would like to keep it steady 79-80.

You could look into purchasing a small water cooler to lower the temp steady but they are really costly
