12 gal Nano Cube cooling Options?

As some have seen in the pics/video area of the salt water forums here i have a 12 gallon nano reef tank set up and with a southern california summer around the corner(where im from ofc) a concern of mine is keeping this tank cool... I say this cause i cant run my central air all day to keep the house 78 or i pay $400-500 a month. And from exp. with my 20gal FW Show tank i have had to ice it down last summer a few times when i got off work to get it down from above 85 to the low 80's(thought 1 day my fish were toast was at 89).. Thats with the tank sitting in a darker cooler area of the house.

Now with this Nano going and the lights will the two small fans under the hood take care of heat issues? I also have put this in a darker area and between a nice air fllow area when the windows are open(for summer). Or is there some sort of nano cube chiller?

There are chillers for tanks, and because you have a lid on the tank, thats what I would recommend.
