So does anyone have a good but not too expensive solution to cool a tank down?
I know it's not to bad now but here we are only going to get hotter. Thanks
Take some plastic bottles, fill them about 3/4 of the way up with tap water and freeze them, then put one in your tank. When it's defrosted put the next one in and refreeze the first one. Just remember to keep a close eye on the temp to make sure it doesn't drop too fast or too far. Or if you have an aircon your set! Just turn it up/colder.
Where abouts in Aus are you if you don't mind me asking?
