I have lots of fishes; Black ghost, discus, angelfish, silver dollar, goldfish, rosy barb, kuhli, betta, swordtails, ram, pleco, loaches (clown and kubotai loach) My country temp is 35c (95F)
Questions;
1. Which fish should be kept in lower temp?
2. Is there anyway to lower the temp with out using aquarium chiller?

goldfish, rosy barbs and swordtails prefer cooler water but they will be fine.

The only way you can reduce it is by using an air conditioner in the room/ house

Turn off electrical appliances in the room and only have the pumps/ filters for the tank running.

Try to open windows at night to let the house cool down and close it up during the day to keep the heat out.

If you have a 2 story building, try to keep the fish on the ground floor because it is cooler than the upper levels of the house.
