I agree. This is a more ideal temp range 72-78°F, for most fish. The most important thing is to keep the temp stable.

I have read quite a few people have been able to lower the temp with a fan.
I don't know how much lower you can get it with a fan. Maybe someone that uses one can tell you their experience.

As mentioned earlier stable is the word. Try to keep it within 1 or 2 degrees

If your lr needs to be cured and your tank has no fish or inverts yet, it is recommended that the water be maintained at 80deg to hasten the curing process.

Just a thought.
