Do you know what species you have? Those that live in riffles and
areas of high current likely have a higher oxygen demand and may
suffer in warmer water with minimal aeration. Use a powerhead with
venturi aspirator (AquaClear, Penguin) with the outlet near the
surface of the water. Note that those appliances will add heat to
the tank. Slackwater species will be less demanding.
