Welcome to AA

I believe with a high temp over time issues can happen with the fish internally especially if your talking cold water fish.

I agree with Andrew - certain fish like warm water, like discus and rams. Others, like goldfish, like cooler water.

Higher temps speed up a fishes metabolism. the eat more, and produce more waste. It also can shorten thier lifespan. Like previously mentioned, some fish do better in higher temps, some don't. If your going to keep your temps high, step up the water changes. Breeders keep fry in high temps to grow them out faster to marketable size in a shorter timeframe.
