How big is your tank? How much are you trying to drop the temp?

I have used frozen water bottles in the past when our A/C went out but that only drops it a degree or two and is definitely not a long term solution.

huh

i am not sure about your tank but i have a couple thet i dont even heat because the lighting they have combined with closed glass tops creates enough heat for the tank and then some...even pumps contribute to the temp...Maybe thats it

You can also set up a fan to blow a breeze across the top of the water. That will help keep the water temp a little cooler.

Aquariums under my username says all you need... current temperature of the tank is 80.3F. I was thinking that 78 or 77 would be better for my tank. I like your frozen water bottle idea maybe i should try later on. Thanks~

yeah... but for mine, even without power of heater and lighting the temperature stays the same or slightly increasing... I hope this doesn't end up stressing my fishes.

But, aren't most of coolers expensive to purchase??? maybe that's just my weak research. Thanks though

just a simple fan to help relieve the tank of stagnent heat...as long as your tank doesnt top out above 82 you should be alright...its the only cheap solution asides ice bottles and bags..sorry ...good luck...ADIOS..

Chillers are big bucks, yes. You can always by a cheap fan from Home Depot or similar hardware store. Good luck.
