    I don't think your temps are quite high enough to be the direct cause of widespread fatalities and if you are getting bubbles into the water from the powerhead it is even more unlikely. I know all about this kind of thing, I live in a very hot place. Regardless, I would find some way to get a fan to blow on the surface of the water to increase evaporative cooling. A couple small clip on fans would make the difference of a couple critical degrees on an 80 gallon tank. Don't try putting cories in a tank that warm, they are one fish I can assure you can't survive at 29 degrees for long.

    Have the power head pointing up so more surface agitation to help evaporation and exchange gases and oxygen.

    Sorry to hear of your losses :( Any chance of water contamination? Either something from tap water or some aerosol spray around the tank?
