I think not every betta will like 86*. I think it kind of extreme. And there is more chance to getting infection in the warmer water. Or you have to keep it super clean, like really a lot of water changes. I read that not all betta will like extreme temperature.
I actually ask my mom to turn a/c for my bettas when i go on vocation because my house in the summer usually about 86* with close windows.
But i was thinking some people just don't have choice in the summer...My husband always turn off a/c when we leave to work and we come back at 6 pm, soi just do extra water changes in the warmer weather. I personally love 100% water changes and all my bettas love it too lol
