I know you really are not looking for a 'fix' for your tank..however i
know this might be helpful to others who are in your situation as well.
You can nautrally cause a tank to self cool by evaporating in warmer
temperature climes. Reef keepers do this quite often simply by putting
a small clip on fan on their sump areas when MH lighting is causing
excessive heat in their tanks. I know it will cause more top-off's,
but as a nice trade off you'll have a lot more plants you can work with.
You should be able to realistically see a 4-5 degree temp difference
with a situation like this.
