Oh, wow, yeah, that's high. I admit I don't know the conversions right off the bat but that seems REALLY high. I wouldn't go above 85 degrees Fahrenheit personally but 90 might be ok.

I would lower it, to be honest. I mean, you'll speed up the life cycle a lot but it's going to put a lot of stress on the fish.

Oh, ok. Phew. You had given me a heart attack.

In that case you can raise it a bit but don't go higher then 85. It really depends on what the fish are used to. If you normally keep the tank at 70 degrees, for example, then 85 would be extremely stressful.

Yeah...I realized after saying that,it was nuts! I probably wouldn't have any fish...

Any the tank is normally about 72 fereinheit.So should I leave it at 82-83 or what? The fish seem fine.They are acting normal.

Yeah, I'd say leave it at where it is now unless they start going downhill and you're desperate.

That's great!! Just remember to keep up the treatment for the full 10 days (or whatever the bottle says).
