Should I worry if my tank gets too hot?

I've read about heaters but I live in a place where it can get into the 90s for weeks on end. I have A/C but it isn't the best unit. I'm sue water takes longer to react than air, but still... Shoji I worry?

Most of my tanks are currently sitting at 84f, I open the tops on some, increase tank aeration, a use small clip on fans blowing air acroose the tops of the tanks...helps keep the in lower 80's rather than middle to high. A frozen bag of water also help by tossing it inside the tank to slowly bring down th temps. I've used that last step but only on a ratale summer day. I'm liken lizard and prefer hotter weather.

Those Who Lack The Courage Will Always Find A Philosophy To Justify It.
