Hello, any suggestions to keep our axolotl's tank cool? We got him this winter and as we enter the warmer weather his tank water is rising above 74 degrees already. I'm afraid of what will happen mid summer.

Desktop or clip on fans pointed at the water surface can cool it a good deal. Also keeping in a cool dark air conditioned room helps. Short term/emergency you can use frozen water bottles to bring down temps but long term it's not a good solution as the temp fluctuates too much. If you live somewhere very hot you may need to invest in a chiller.
