Summer temperatures

Hello,

I just realized that during the summer months, my house gets to be really hot (90+degrees) and I don't have air conditioning and I just realized I don't know what I'm going to do about that for my betta....

He will be fine.
The warmer temperatures won't harm him. Just make sure he doesn't get sunlight and that his tanks gets some fresh air.

So he will be okay in 90+ degrees?

I take it cold temperatures are much more dangerous that hot for bettas?

In the summer months I move a lot of my Bettas outside to spawn and the water temp can get well into the 100'sF and they tolerate it just fine-the gradual change to warmer and cooler temps is generally tolerated by a healthy Betta-also, especially in unfiltered tanks the temp can be different at different levels of the tank itself....watch the Bettas behavior-each one can vary in their tolerance to extreme temps.....if he seems stressed then you may have to intervene....
