My 29 gallon tank currently has 8 neon tetras, 1 Endler, 1 Dwarf Gourami, And 1 Bolivian Ram. I live in Arizona and if I don't use an aquarium fan to cool down the aquarium water, it will get to 78F, but using the aquarium fan makes the tank lose water really fast and creates an aggressive current from the filter so all the fish just start hiding in places where there is no current.

My question is will it be ok to just allow the tank to reach 78F so that the tank wouldn't lose water all the time, or is that bad for the fish?

See I never understoodd the hot climate hot tank thing, it’ll be in the 80’s and 90’s in Ohio during the summer but I have an air conditioner so my house is around the same temperature year round.

To answer your question, yes, but it’s pretty warm for them.

78 is where I been keeping my tank at and it's been great.

Most heaters will actually keep your tank at around that temp.

I'm from Arizona as well, so I understand the fear of your fish "boiling" from this heat
