They will be OK with mid-80's F. Say 85F plus the one dose of Copersafe. If you do a water change during the 7 days following the Coppersafe, you wil need to replenish it only for the amount of water removed. Return the temp after 7 full days, again slowly over a week. Water changes as normal after that.
