Oh OK. Glad you found the stand. You should be OK and BTW 84 wont kill your fish. I know several folks that keep their water at 82-83. Fluctuating water temps will do more harm.

Even the jump from 78 to 84 in one day wouldn't harm them too much?

The jump would not be too kind to them. I`m just saying that a stable 82-84 would be better than a fluctuating 78-84.

Blowing a fan directly across the top of the tank would be worth a shot before buying a chiller.

So far the stand for the light seems to be doing the trick. If it spikes again I will try the fan before I result to a chiller, thank you for the help!

With my lights raised my temperature has been staying between 78 and 80. Hopefully it will stay that way!

Greetings,

Per recommendations on AA, I use a fan on high setting and blow it at the sump when I go to work in the morning. I also open the top as well as any cabinet doors. So far the temperature is at 78.5 in the afternoon. It is amazing how air flow can help to control the temperature. It however evaporates the water much faster so I must keep an eye to prevent my water level from getting below operating level of the skimmer. DP

I agree. It does wonders but as you said evaporation is a problem. But it can easily be taken care of with top off water.
