This is what I do usually to reduce the water temperature:
1. Get a fan to blow across the top of the water.
2. Get too hot get ice cubes and put them in a bag and float them in the tank.
3. Run your tank when at night by having the lights on at 4-5PM till 11PM. This is good too cause you are not using electricity during peak hours.
4. Get a chiller...

The fan actually works pretty well for my reef tank I have a fan blowing across it almost 24/7 and have the lights come on at night and my temperature didn't get too hot. Just watch out for the evaporation rate also I had to refill about 1/2 a gallon a day in a 20 gallon tank in the summer.
