Cooling a tank please help

Can you run a copper tubbing through water and not have it kill fish,they make special copper..and if not does anyone have a better idea using a mini fridge to get water temps to 68....not for a betta lol.

not sure about the copper .. but to cool off a tank .. you could use ice packs .. ice cubes in a zip lock bag .. or a desk fan .. and blow it at the tank

You could make ice in old plastic bottled water bottles. I find that making them in ziploc bags don't work very well, since they kept breaking. Once, my betta even got stuck in it :S Or you could make ice with water (with conditioner) and just throw those in...
