My temp is hanging out at 75-76 range. This concerns me as summer hasn't even hit here. Yes, my house is a/c'd but in the worst of it, it does climb up to 80 in here.

Am I going to have to get a chiller?

I was aiming for 70-72. Thinking about Carbon Rillis? Or something similar. Maybe I should try a couple computer fans first?

What is making your temp that warm? I assume you aren't keeping your house that temp are you? Are your lights adding extra heat to the tank? Do you have a glass top that is trapping heat from the lights?

Probably the glass top. I have small kids and I have it shut.
