@ SCORPIO,parthapratim22 thnk

how i reduce my tank temperature -Now my place temperature is around 43 c (during afternoon) but at May end it will cross 45C, i m able to keep my tank temp 25-27 C.
good thing is that mostly humidity level is less here so i can reduce temp by increasing evaporation. my room cooler reduce room temp around 30C so i need not to evaporate much of tank water .
exhaust fan -

my tank hood is frame of wood ,open at top which is cover by glass pieces which i can slide to make air ventilation

Install industrial fans to reduce water temperature.

now this is what a pitifully managed and maintained tank.

And nicely updated regularly, very impressive.
