Keeping tank cool?

Anyone have any simple tips to keep your tank cool in the summer? My temps are going from 78-80 up to 82 during mid day. And thats in the shade. Its just so bloody humid and wam in my office. Ice cubes maybe?

Hi Scott,
I wouldnt worry too much about 82 - thats not very warm.
You could put some ice cubes in a baggy and float em in the filter,
or blow a fan across the top, but 82 isnt very hot, should be OK.
My small tanks get up to 86 or so in the heat and I dont worry too much.
If the fish seem stressed you can do a water change with slightly cooler water.
