Putting ice in is not such a good idea as the fish can try to eat it and it would cool down areas of the tank too fast. If you can, increase aeration by adding an airstone to the tank: warmer water holds less oxygen then cold water.

What species have to got? 29⁰C is not dangerous for most tropical fish. If the water does try to rise above 30⁰C, you can float water bottles full of cool (not frozen) water. It would also help if you left the lights off and opened the lid (if your fish are not species which are known for jumping. Adding a fan to point across the surface of the water also works well.

Time to start running around with cold water bottles 24/7 by the sound of things. Is there a cooler part of the house you could move the tank to?

hi unfortunately the temp spiked in the tank nd hit 40 and as could be expected there were a lot of casualties but we did manage to save some and although we couldn't move the tank to a cooler part as our house is too small by running fans on it and doing a water change every week as normal taking the lid off the tank no light and water bottles constantly swapping over we have managed to make it through with a few surviving fish and about 30 fry which I hope will be a little tougher from their experience. Sorry its taken so long to reply I have had a lot of issues getting on the site :(. Do you think that the fry will be able to survive more readily after this? Oh and I also added some more air curtains and stones so the water had more oxygen going through it
