Plants begin pearling as temp rises - shows optimum temp?

Due to an ich outbreak, I had to raise my temp to 85. About the time it hit 81-82 my plants started pearling like crazy.

Does this mean that my optimum temperature is 81-82 for my particular setup? I have been keeping it at 78-79 with only semi-pearling, but rare.

any thoughts?

As water is heated, it holds less gasses. Thinking the bubbles are those gasses escaping.
