How high of temp can Spotted Hillstreams take? *PIC*

I have a 125 gal planted tank.
Besides the hillstreams, I have Pearl Gouramis/Zebra Loaches/Clown Pleco/Glass Cats/Bristlenose Plecos/Otos/Cories
a new Skunk cory *appears* to possibly be coming down with Ich. I saw one spot.
The hillstreams came from LFS that keeps them at 76-80..
I had lowered my tank from 80-76/75..
now I am slowly raising it back up to 80 for awhile..
I know they can take higher temps for awhile...just wondered HOW long?
Also going to try a saltwater dip on the seemingly affected cory..
