Lightbulb thinkin about new lighting...temp question

I have a Eclipse system 6 with the stock 8w T5 that it comes with, and right now i'm averaging about 78-80 degrees. I am thinking about getting the 13w ahsupply kit and adding that for 13+8 watts of light. Does anyone have any clue how much my temperature might raise? Also, how hot is too hot? Right now i have some anachris, java fern, dwarf sag and tetras. Damn heatwave.

Does anyone here have A/C? This summer heatwave thing seems to be affecting a lot of people.

Maybe a 1-2 degree difference?

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
