a bit toasty

Currently lacking any fluorescent lighting to grow my plants, I've been using a fairly well lit window. After school today, I returned to find my tank at about 83 degrees. Is it okay to continue leaving it like that, or should I stop this immediately? My tank has 3 corycats (planning on a 4th), a betta, water wisteria, java fern, anubias, amazon sword, and anacharis. Is this going to kill or be too upsetting to anything?

is the temp steady? bettas originate from a warm area so 83 shouldnt be too bad for them, but its on the high side. if your bettas dont show any signs of distress, then i dont think its an issue. i dont know about the cories though, since i dont keep cories. I used to live in a place that would get REALLY warm in the summer and what we used to do was freeze a water bottle and put that in the tank whenever it got too warm. it will lower the temp by a few degrees and didnt see any harm from it. hope it helps :D
