Heat wave

How do you manage your tanks during a heat wave? At the moment the water in my tanks is at 33 (91F) about 6 degrees higher than my tank is normally at. During the day (it's 9pm now) I imagine they must have been even warmer than that.

Should I add ice cubes? Or point a fan at the tanks for a while?

The temps here are going to be in the high 30s for the next week, is there anything I can do to make sure my fish aren't stressed with the temp fluctuations?

A fan will help, also doing water changes with a little cooler water would help also, I'd imagine it would be refreshing to your tank mates as well.
