 Depends  on  where  you  keep  it.  If  it  is  a  tight  hood,  suck  the  air  from  inside  the  hood  and  blow  it  out.  This  will  get  rid  of  the  heat  inside  the  tank  hood.  But  if  its  opn  roof,  then  you  just  have  to  keep  air  blowing  on  the  water  to  keep  it  cool.  
 NB:  If  you  do  the  blow  method,  a  good  deal  of  water  is  going  to  evaporate  each  day.  I  refill  a  bucket  full  of  water  every  3  days.

 Well,  even  I  live  in  Chennai  and  do  find  the  CPU  fan  technique  quite  effective.
 Mine  is  a  big  CPU  fan  (0.5A)  and  performs  well.  Not  sure  if  you  have  the  small  ones  or  the  big  one.
 Try  getting  the  big  500mA  ones.

 I  had  these  small  fan's  lying  around.  Utilized  these  fans  to  make  a  set.  The  fans  are  placed  at  45  deg  facing  the  water  surface.
