I recently upgraded to a 55 gallon hex aquarium and have 6 Von Rio Flame tetras and 3 Green Lantern platies. Since this is the first summer I'll had a tank at this house, I forgot how hot it gets. We only have a swamp cooler, so during the summer when it's 100+ degrees outside, it will be about 85 inside, so there's no practical way that I can keep the water temp down. My question is, should I expect these fish to kick the bucket (Tetra's max temp is about 82, platy 79) or have you found yours to be okay?
