Does anyone have a chiller I could borrow?  My central air just went down and my tank is already at 81 degrees.  I had one I was going to buy but the sale fell through.  My tank is a 55 with a 30 gallon sump, so around 75 gallons of water.
 
Thanks!
Cory

Until you find one fans blowing across the water, and also you can freeze ro water and use the icecubes to help cool the tank....good luck

A fan blowing on the water's surface can drop a tanks temperature significantly. I would try that first before leaping to a chiller. Chillers can actually make the problem worse as they put off considerable amounts of heat into the room they are in.
