Anyone else in jhb struggling with high Temps. Usually around 27, goes up to 28 some times. That's with my quad 39w t5s off.

Any suggestions on how to keep it Cool. Don't know how to install pc fans. I use a normal fan that bows over the DT but I'd prefer a better solution.

Advise would be appreciated. Tank is going well, just this damn heat.

my system has been suffering aswell here in EL, been as high as 30 deg cel. looking at fitting an aircon to my fishroom but short term pc fans are probably your best bet, as you are using the fan now is also ok, just try get fresh air to pass through the room..

good luck

You get clip on fans for tanks. Boyu made them, so should be able to find them at most LFS. The other brand was Dymax and is sold by VIP Pets

Get an stc1000. The best controller around to automatically control your fans
Fans will automatically be turned on should the temp go over your desired temperature.
Then turn off again when under your desired temp.
I have stc1000, I just need to get the fans.
