80 degrees is still acceptable. What type of set up do you have?

You can add a fan... you can also add "bags" of ice You would probably want them sealed so you don't add a bunch of water to the tank. You could get a chiller. You could change your lighting so it doesn't add as much heat to the tank... but if you are having problems already... I think a chiller is your best bet (expensive and can get stuck in the "on" position). But a fan can do amazing things (does increase your water evaporation a lot.)
Do you think you could post some photos of your setup (showing air flow, lighting, and sump ect.)

Can you show some pictures of your setup? I love to look at tanks but we are more trying to look at the "hardware" because that's what you need to add to/modify if you are going to make the tank colder.
