Water temperature

Hi, what is the optimum water temperature range for our bettas. I was told 78-82. But I just wanted to make sure. If it ever gets to 86, is that dangerous? Sometimes the heat of the afternoon warms the tank up higher than it should probably be.

Thanks, Lisa

78-82 is ideal, when i breed my bettas i usually raise it to 86 with no problems. Had a few malfunctions on heaters and water went to 92 and they were fine. Also had power outages during the winter and had water temps down to low 50s for a week and they were fine.
