Regarding cooling system, I have followed the DIY of Mr. Shelly DIY Guru
The materials I have used is
1. 1" x 1/2" teak wood reaper
2. Computer fan 5" CZF MODEL C12025S 12LV DC 12V 0.25A
3. Power supply 12V - 1200mA AC Adopter lying in my scrap box.
This was built on the teak wood reaper and kept on the top. Air blow towards aquarium water and we can reduce max 4 degree.
Now I am using it whenever the light is on and I am maintaining the mercury below 30 degree as on now today the mercury shows 32 at Hyd.

Very good result Janardhanam.
Even though I have used my old 3 feet lighting set for my guppy rack, I am still pondering to do the DIY lighting created by sujo. My only concerned is that my tank is 4 feet long, not 2 feet. Maybe I should make a double 2 feet PVC tubing and join them to be 4 feet. Getting to cut the tube for a 4 footer in one go, seems very tedious.

My tank length is 32 inches. I suggest to go for 160mm PVC pipes which is having more thickness and it can withstand.
As a sportive person, you do one thing, Cut the pipe daily one feet, the fifth day, you will have a nice half pipe in you hand and try to finish, by sand papering the cutting place and edges. Finally, apply black paint.
All the Best.
