Is 82 degrees an ok tank temperature?

Lotte lives in a five gallon tank with a non adjustable heater that keeps the temperature anywhere between 80-82 degrees Fahrenheit. I was wondering, at its hottest point, would that overheat her?

nope, as long as it's a steady change and no sudden fluctuations she'll be fine even in the high 80s.

my tanks can get up to 86 during the summer and i've never had problems. I have a window AC unit and I don't keep it on unless im actually in my apartment (to save money) so during the day my tanks can get up to 86.

Thanks for that info :) also, my tank isnt near a window. Is that ok? It's in between a bookshelf between me and my sister's rooms, and each of us has window about six yards away from the tank, so even if we had a door open, I don't think the light could reach it. The nearest one from there is behind a chandelier that is by the staircase, but it is even farther from the tank and I don't think it could reach, as the tank it farther to the left.

It's generally recommended to keep tanks out of direct sunlight and away from drafts- so not having next to a window isn't a problem.
