    Try this:

    take an old PC fan, and an old Cellphone charger. cut the wires and join them so the charger runs the fan.
    boom 2C drop in my tank.

    i had it blowing under my lighting unit to keep the heat from that from heating the surface of the water. this also aided evaporative cooling.

    you can also install one blowing into the sump area.
    this keeps moisture out of the sump and will again aid in cooling.

    total cost is minimal.

    i swear by this method. it just works. and is cheap enough to give it try before purchasing a noisy expensive chiller.

    PC fans running on Cell chargers are totally silent.
    you dont need alot of airflow to get the temp down a long way.

    to much airflow will obviously cause excess evaporation. check that you heater and fans are not trying to combat each other.

    Try the PC fan method. you'll be very suprised
