The brighter the light - the more heat that it puts out (usually - although there are always exceptions). Do you suspend the light over the tank - or does it sit directly on top of the tank?

Get a thermometer and place it inside the tank - I think you will see that your temps will be closer to 70 or more - and within the range that your auratus will be happy.

Typically - there is more of an issue with keeping darts cool in the warmer months than warm in the cooler months.
