Would either of these methods work? I would like to chill my tank
and then warm it back up in the spring time (as usual, all of my
tanks are dependent on room temp, which usually varies 2 degrees

my aquarium, but I do not think that my office mates would like fish
water running over their yogurt and sodas (I do not know why... it is
just added flavor). I think that an air hose might be a little
better for them.
