It's called a hydrometer and some can be really inaccurate..I saw bad reviews on the Instant Ocean one.

Ok so I bought a small PC fan today and mounted it about an inch above the water of my main tank under the hood and have it blowing down across the surface of the water. I've been home all day today and have had the air conditioning running so its not really a fair test but the water temperature in my main tank has gone from 32C down to 29.5C. Fingers crossed the fan is doing the trick and not the AC.

Haha well he slowed down a little bit while the temp was dropping but now he's fine. I have to head out of town again tomorrow night but when I get back on Saturday if the temperature seems to be pretty stable I think I'll buy another clown fish and try again.

Thanks heaps. Not the best hobby or pets to have when you're always away but hopefully everything will be fine.

So how was the temp when you got back? How was the fish? Did you get anything new for the tank? Want news, pics, to live vicariously through your tank!!
