lower the temp in the house? I,ve heard of people
putting frozen water bottles, or those frozen blue things you put in coolers?

I had a problem with temp when i was using a high watt bulb. Being that i whad a pearlite bottom i just placed ice cubes in the FC. When there gets to be too much water in the FC i have a small drain-cock installed.

If its a styrofoam cooler then a freezer pack or ice cubes like rod suggested would probally work great seeing as the cooler makes such a good insulator. I had my temps above 80 too and didnt see any pins untill I turned on the central air and cooled the whole house down. If at all possable you might want to just try cooling the room around it. I got my temps down to about 77 just by keeping all my lights off in the room turning off my computer and anything to add heat. Obviously you need light for pinning but I think its a little over rated. two hours a day or 12 I havent seen any change..except more growth in the dark (don't know why that is).

Is it hooked up to a timer or something? You may be getting too much humidity and not enough FAE with that setup.

Light is good for initiating pinning. The dark is when they get big!
