For one thing, the oxygen concentration goes down when the water heats up. I'm not sure what the first behavior symptoms are. Many fish will adapt to higher temperatures if it goes up slowly. What types of fish are we talking about? What temperature?

I don't have air conditioning, I often see mysterious fish deaths in summer, with no obvious symptoms presenting first.

Thermometers can be found for very cheap... In a reef tank, you'll want your temp around 82 or so, give or take a degree.

Don't forget to adjust slowly if you're out of spec. A degree or two per day.
