So yesterday was pretty hot in the south east, and fortunately i took the day off and was at home, and was watching my crestie's terrarium creep up to the dreaded 80 mark. I had to mist it with cooled water a couple of times and did the melting ice on the top thing.

I wanted to ask if its worth getting a coolstat with a fan? Im not always there in the day (like today) and worried about hot days getting it over 80. A coolstat and fan is pretty £££ though so is it really worth it?...

Fans alone are a waste of time. If the ambient air temperature is above your desired threshold, then all a fan will be doing is moving around the hot air, it wont cool it.

You could look at getting a small room conditioner maybe? Second hand ones arent too expensive :)
