Chiller Recommendations Plz

I just invested in a 65 gallon tank. We get a little hot out here and thinking of a chiller. Our house is usually kept air conditioned to 78-80 degrees. But with lights, even LED I worry the tank will get too warm. I like to keep it about 76-77.

And then if we ever have an AC issue, I want to be prepared.

What would you recommend?

What were you going to keep? One of the guys here had some expensive salt-water chiller for his shrimp, then a cheap one for something else (we were talking way down the backyard where nobody could hear us admit what some stuff cost ).

Looked at fans and canít seem to find anything I can attach to the tank. All of them are for rimless. My tank edge is 1Ē thick.

I found some ugly office clip onís. But not willing to go ugly.

OK. Put a piece of wood across the tank from front to back. Now try these fans.

Use 1, 2 or 3 across to blow across the tank lengthwise.
