That's a compact fluorescent, not an incandescent light.

Similar to this: Compact Fluorescent Aquarium Lighting: Nano Cube Replacement Straight Pin Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

They shouldn't be putting out a whole lot of heat, but I guess they can raise it by a degree or two. I would consider installing a fan, then. That would be a heck of a lot cheaper than installing a chiller.

You can buy them. Here's an example:

Or, you can DIY: Petfrd.com - Resource Library - DIY Cooling Fans

Nice looking tank! Is that the 24 gallon AquaPod?

Make any decisions yet regarding what kind of fish you want in there?

Just go to any well sorted electronic store and get a PC fan (just the normal lil case fans) I'd pers get 2 on a 94g tank and wire it up and done for wayyy less then the same thing labeled "Aquarium" will cost ya

@batman - Its the 24 Gal aqua one AR620. I got 2 golden gourami and some driftwood from my LFS for free as he was clearing all his stock to re do all the tanks etc, and they where the last 2 fish left, the drift wood he jus gave me.

@angel - yeah i know, i had a look at some computer ones on ebay, they where only like 3 or 4 dollars.
