Open top with a fan or two blowing across the water surface.

I agree with Yoink. I bought a cheap clipon fan from Walmart and have it mounted on one side blowing across the open tank. This operates as an evaporative cooler. My room temp in the tank room is 83 degrees and the 2 tanks that I have a fan on run 74 to 75 degrees. The fan cost $8.

Good Luck,
