    No, I haven't tried fans. During the winter months I keep my tank at 78, summer months I raise normal temp to 79, hoping to help big shifts in temp. Tank usually raises to 81/82 degrees depending how hot it is outside. Will a fan keep it down a few degree? How much will a fan help?

    Quite a bit. Couple degrees easy. Just gotta have an auto top off.

    Well given the right price, and the right motivation I might be interested :D

    My tank usually run room temp +1-2 degree. With a fan it brought it down to room temp.

    This is the fan I used

    It is a bit small for a 5' tank but it was sufficient.

    My fan worked great, up until this weekend.
    It was unusually humid, so less evaporation. And my house AC died, so air around DT was warmer.
    So it bumped up to 81.5. Everything was fine though.
    I have just a single 200mm computer fan, for a 300G system.
    It does not take a lot, although I may double it now.

    FYI: Fans are a LOT cheaper to fix and replace than the main house AC unit. :mad:
