It’s pretty warm in my house and my tank temp is 81 F right now but it will only be that high temporarily until later tonight when it cools down, so it is alright to be that warm for one night? If not how can I cool it down.

It depends on the fish, but I would think it be alright. Since it will get warmer, perhaps you should look at lowering the temperature in your tank by turning it down a notch to adjust to the outside temp.

As long as the temp doesn’t fluctuate too much during the course of a day it should be fine for a short time.

That said, bettas do nicely at 79- 80 so if it gets much warmer and you don’t have AC to keep the house temp down it does speed metabolism which amounts to a shorter life.

You can use a regular house fan to blow across the top of the tank to cool it down some. Might be a challenge with a lid though...
