Aquarium Temprature

If it were me, I'll raise it. My temp is 80-84 (depends on how hot the day is)

Isnt 80 or above to hot? I was thinking of raising to 76F. isnt it better to be cooler then hotter? dont the fish start to suffocate at higher temps?

I believe most would agree for tropicals, 78-82 is optimal.
