What is your night time temperature? I ask because i acutally keep my tanks at 82-84F range anyway.

If your night time to day time temp swing is not all that great (2-3degrees) then it will be fine. If your swinging more like 5-10 then you might want to find a way to drop the water temp in the day or bump your heaters some so they keep the night time temp a little higher.
