I need to cool my tank off any suggestions?

Ok so there are tons of ways to heat a tank but my room gets up to 90 degrees in the day and my bettas water is past the 86 mark on his thermometer he hasnt had a problem with it until today he started darting around the tank and not being as social as he usually is I read it might be because the water is too hot. I have a 10 gal tank and i tried filters for flow but he really hates them i even tried taking it down to a 1-3 gal filter he still wigs i thought ice but im worried that would change it too dramatically i would say a fan but that doesnt even cool off the room i doubt it would do much for the water. Does anybody have any suggestions?

If you lower the house temp that will help.

My tanks have been really warm lately too..I finally had to break down and put my AC back on...You can place some ice cubes in a baggie and float it in the tank, but it will really only bring it down temporarily. You could try using a fan to blow air over the top of the tank.
