I've recently raised my temperature to around 83 en route to 85 as suggested for treatment of an ich outbreak in my 29 standard and my appisto Cac female died. It was always a sickly specimen that didn't eat with the other fish but I still wanted to confirm it wasn't the result of any condition changes. Also I've only been running an airstone at night if that b/c my fish tank is heavily planted and i've been trying to maintain a lot of C02. Can anyone confirm if the infrequent airstone and high temperatures is ok for my Appisto? Thanks for any help!

Normally a temperature change like this should have no lasting impact on Apistos. For long term care this is too warm but in a temporary situation it shouldn't be a problem. Cacatoides are a species that typically lives in more moderate temps but they are highly adapatable and should be OK. A species like A. commbrae might find temps in the mid 80's to be too high.
