20 Gallon Tank Planted tank at 88F

PlantedTankFun

So I live in the Midwest and it’s starting to heat up… my room does not have air conditioning, and my tank is at 88F with the heater off. It has 8 celestial pearl danios… how do I cool this puppy off… HELP!

Remove any lids. Limit any additional heat source such as lighting to the minimum necessary. A fan blowing on the surface will reduce the temp by a few degrees. You can use a household fan or there are inexpensive clip on aquarium fans designed for the purpose. It will increase evaporation so top ups will be necessary.

Close your blinds and maybe get some clip on USB fans to blow into the water. Really try and fix that temp because Celestial pearl danios prefer cooler temps not above 80
