Betta in the attic with no a/c?

I am on vacation and we lost power a day or 2 ago, but I have no way of getting home. I only had betttas in the tanks, so bubblers were not needed. I thinkI lost the cycles in both filters tho D: The attic gets pretty hot ith no a/c, so I want to know if there is even a chance of her being alive. Thanks!

Will the attic get to be above 90F?? Bettas breed in temps that high I think and they can do okay for a short period of time in warm water like that.. But hopefully it cools off in the evening.

Don't panic! There's still a good chance they're alive!

I hope your attic doesn't get as hot as my parents' attic! D: I actually had a dream last night that the water in my tanks was 105-118 and my bettas were somehow still alive (in actuality I have one betta and one tank, lol).

I think it depends on how hot your attic gets. I know OFL has betta tanks that get around 90F in the summer (meaning the air temp would be around 100F). I wouldn't worry too much about them being around that temp for a few days. When you get back, move the tanks to a lower level.
