    Add an airstone to the tank in the meantime and freeze some ice packs and drop then in when the temp is climbing... Also unplug your heater as i have noticed heaters kicking in even when the tank temp is more than its set to...

    That is some great advice from @Jason.
    The main killer of things when the temperature rises is lack of oxygen. As the temperature goes higher the oxygen decreases.

    All I do is drop in some ice packs and put on the battery operated air pump for power outages. :thumbup:
    If you want you could also add some fans. @Andre@ReefAquatics has a great product called the stc-1000. You can set it to a temperature and if it goes above your set temperature the fans kick in. If it drops below the heaters go on.

    Did you find a chiller yet? If not, I might be able to help you with my Teco chiller I'm selling (part of my whole system I want to sell). It keeps my tank's temp very constant. Have a look at my tank for sale threat.
