I have a high light well planted 26g tank, with an amazon sword, rotala indica, java fern, dwarf hair grass, crpyt wendtii and some driftwood.

The past few days I raised the temperature of my tank to about 81 or 82. I have been too busy to do a water change and the water has evaporated to about two inches lower than it was. all the sudden today my harlequin rasboras and gouramis are swollen with eggs.
is this because of the raise In temperature?

Also I have a male and female pair of german blue rams who are nipping at each other a lot. Is this pre-spawning behavior? it looks pretty aggressive thigh so I'm not sure.

I'm not very good with the type of fish you have but

You may have tricked your fish by raising the temp. Now they think it is spawning season.

With a lot of fish aggression is a little more in higher temps and also during spawning
