    Some of my plants are not doing so great in this heat , and I saw some algae on wood and stones.
    How are your plants doing on this heat ?!

    P.S. Thanks again Keith for the Green Neon Tetra suggestion , I like them alot.

    I found the best method was turn the lights off during the heat of the day, do every thing you can to keep the room cool and if possible more water movement including having a fan facing the water surface.

    I have heard floating a drink bottle filled with frozen water. Every little thing you can do will help.

    I have an ADA Aquasky led lamp so she doesn't give any heat at all to my tank, thanks God fot that.I use from time to time a fan but is not such a good method when you don't see the tank for days because of the massive water
    evaporation .
    I now about the "ice bottle" method too , but again not so practical if you don't see the tank.
    I think the only suitable method is to cool your room with an AC , so you get comfort for both , you and you're tank . :)

    When we had a hot summer few days I tried to keep the rooms as cool as I could no AC just fans to circulate the air.

    Lucky the weather is much colder this days , so no need for special attention. But when the weather doesn't help I do frequent water changes to cool it down trying to maintain it at 25 degrees Celsius , noting else. I'm pretty lazy ! :)
    In rest of the year I have 21-22 degrees in the tank , wich in my opinion is the optimal temperature for an nature aquascape tank.

    I have had Neons and Cardinals I don't think I have ever seen Green Tetras I know the Neon importer never imported them.

    Yes well deserved Bogden. Sometimes I think the actual position is subjective and everyone's top ones can different than judges,I would personally rank yours much higher than awarded

    You deserve those words.
    Personally I think if you had waited another year I am sure you would have a higher rating.

    Those few bare areas in the front did not help.
