What is the temp? Do you have a sump? If so you can freeze water bottles or put ziplock baggies of ice and put them in there to lower the temp.

Yeah temp should be around 76-78 if you want to keep corals. 86 is really too High I would get a fan on it fast or turn down your heater a bit until your tank adjust... What else is running in your system besides that heater you have any Pumps? Also what type of heater is it?

place a PH pointing at the floating bottles to equalize the temp as much as you can. You won't get an accurate reading otherwise.

Temp can be 79/80 for corals. You want a stable temp (2 degeree range max). Is the fan blowing across the top helpign at all? I take it no AC in the apt. A chiller will be your only option for the summer, unless you get a room AC.

BTW, it's a probably a combination of things that are causing your problems. Iodine dosing, detectable Ammonia, and high temps.
