I don't have a RO filter ($$$), but I add prime to the water first and let the water settle a day, then add salt. and then do water change.
is that ok?? or I have to go buy one of those RO filter?

You can buy ro if there is a store near you that sells ro filters as they usually sell ro water. Otherwise your lfs should sell it. Ro is cheap compared to all the headache meds you will be buying IMO.

My tank sits at 81 constantly with no problems. I highly doubt that temp was the problem.

Prime will not remove TDS or hard metals or silicas from the water.
