Cooling tank

Ok so my 30g fowlr is currently running at about 80 degrees.

I live in Florida and we are yet to hit the summer. So I'm thinking when summer kicks in and temps rise to 90+. How can I cool my tank without having the air conditioning on all day?

if you have a enclosed top remove it
and replace it with something like this
and you can run a fan above your tank if need be

If money is tight, you could get a couple fans blowing across the surface of the open top, and get an automatic top off system to minimize the effect of evaporation

No you want the top off to be the same temp as the tank. Mine has been sitting around 80 degrees too. I leave the cover open with the ceiling can on during the day and it drops to 78.
