Heater attraction

My tank thermometer says my tank is 80F (placed on the opposite side of the tank as the heater). My Mollys are always hanging out by the top of the heater where it meets the water. Should I turn up the temp?

If the tank is 80 degrees I wouldn't think you'd need to...

Sometimes they might even hang out at the top if its too warm since the dissolved oxygen level goes down.

Is this a new tank? Fish hang out at the surface when being poisoned by ammonia.

There is that ^
Or I would ask is there someone in the tank that bullys a little bit? I have found that fish being bullied like to "blend" in with the heaters and spray bars.

There is a guppy in the tank who is a bit of a bully but I have only ever seen him bully the platys...never the Mollys.

I have had an ammonia issue I've been working on correcting. I am now down to 0.20 ppm ammonia (from 0.50 ppm) and have to do another water change soon.

Thanks for the insight.
