Betta in 90 degrees?

One of my air conditioners broke, and my room is the attic, so with the other on full blast, its about 90-95 degrees in here, should I move the tank downstairs? Its a 2.5 gal with a betta and the weather should cool in a couple days so its down to 80ish

whats the water temperature? because the atmosphere is usually warmer than the water temperature itself.

I would, the tank would normally be a few degrees cooler than the room, which would be high 80's to 90+....sounds like you might end up with betta soup! Hopefully it's small enough to cart about without too much trouble.

Bettas can live up to 88-90 degree water. as long as there is no sunlight exposure that causes the water to be hot to the touch of your finger. If you want to be safe you could move the betta downstairs.

I don't have AC in my room either and it was 105 here today. I unplugged all the heaters and their water was still about 87 . Thankfully it was only a 2 day thing. Tomorrow its supposed to be 70-80
