Question Temp..

what do I do if the water is above 80? I don't have a heater, ever since I did a water change today, it's been that warm. I don't want my boys to be to warm and for something to happen. Is it alright or do I have to do something??

How much over 80? My bettas tank gets to around 82, I think the highest was 84, but don't worry, I don't see any problems with that. My betta basically lives in those conditions, and he is great! =) They are tropical fish, I heard they could sustain even higher temps than like 86

Does your tank have a light, or is under any direct light? Turning it off does help lower the temp
