Yes. Neons prefer about 76įf.
It will tend to shorten their lifespan.
What kind of Cory. C sterbai can handle high temps but most prefer 76-78į

Is that the tank's normal temp (i.e., where you have the heater set), or is it just that high because it's a hot summer where you are? If the former, turn the temp down to 76, doing two degrees per day. Neons are much happier in the mid-70s.

If it's weather related, they can take short periods at around 80 without too much stress.

I'd keep the fan running if you can. OK summers can get hot.
