Solutions:

1) place tank in basement

2) set your heater to 80 to reduce the swing

3) get a ice prob chiller with RKL (thats what i am doing.)

or 4) get a fan plus ATO.

If you can't stop the heating in the day from the lights, then at least raise the heater's setting a few degrees below that maximum (like 80ºF). Also, use a thermometer to set the heater's temperature; don't rely on the heater's dial to be accurate.
