I have the same issue with my 29g bio cube. Always at 82 in there and I removed the heater completely.

lemme look and see if any of my sites has international shipping and/or a good link for you.

Aquarium Water Quality & Temperature Control: Arctica Titanium Chillers

Hope this helps a bit.

84 in Manchester? Ah well, I wouldn't have thought it got that hot. How close are your t5's to the water? If it's like 1cm or so I'd raise it up several centimeters. Also, is it a closed canopy? Run a fan across the water or open up the lid before trying a chiller.

If you must, JBJ Arctica chillers seem to be good quality/value.

In summer I honestly just blast a few fans at the side and keep the lid popped, lol.

Exactly why it's baffling me so much.
It's not even been hot here.
It's a closed canopy but I've taken three of the lids off.
The lights are around 6cm off the water.
What's the maximum amount of time I should have the lights on?
Maybe reducing the time
Will cool it abit,
