Summer Heat!!

How do you guys/ girls deal with the summer heat with your tanks? In the uk, I live in London. Got home from work to find my tank was a 32c :0 lifted the lid and turned off the lights but didn't really drop at all. It's not in direct sunlight at all, all the windows where open. Is this something I'm just going to have to deal with?

Many thanks

You can point a small fan at the water's surface, that will drop it a degree or two C.

I have MTS

Fan pointed to water can drop the temp more than few degrees. My room temp is about 29C and the water temp in the tank is 24C.
So the fan does a great job. Only thig is the water evaporatio. You can add about 0.5L a day.
