    Me: Hi, do you sell fans for fish tanks? They usually clip on to the side to blow on the water's surface.

    LFS expert: Fans? For fish?

    Me: Yeah, for cooling off the tank...

    LFS expert: I don't understand why they would need a fan. They have all that water.

    Me: (...) They might be in your saltwater section.

    LFS expert: I don't think it exists.

    Me: Ok thanks.

    So how well do your fans work so far? How much did they cool your tank and what size is it?

    I just run the fans when my lights are on. My tanks generally stay 2-4 degrees cooler then the ambient temperature of my house, which during the day gets up to 80 when I'm not there. I have 2 fans blowing on my 40 gallon, and 1 fan on my 10 gallon. I think realistically they can drop temps 3 - 7 degrees or so, depending on how hot your ambient room temp gets and factoring in how different that is from desired tank temp.
