I have always run a fan at the surface of the water it can cool your tank down 6degrees.Your lights are the culprit and you should stick your hand under them for a minute or so.They run at over a hundred degrees.You can rig a fan on your tank and solve a huge temp problem.It might not look super great or sound great but depending on the size of the fan and the location you can save $$$.Chillers are 800$and a fan is 20$ There are pet stores I frequent that have adopted the fan method with great results.It will also save money on electricety chillers can run 1000watts plus,and somtimes ice is just a super quick remedy.
