Yes it's fine. They come from a hot climate anyway and have adapted to low oxygen levels in the water by developing a labyrinth organ that lets them breath air from the atmosphere as well as breath in water.

Just make sure you do big regular water changes and gravel clean the substrate to keep the tank clean. Bacteria grow faster in warm water so more water changes and bigger water changes help keep bad bacteria levels lower in hot weather.
Make sure any new water is free of chlorine/ chloramine before it's added to the tank.

Make sure the new water has a similar temperature to the tank water. A couple fo degrees difference isn't a problem but avoid major temperature fluctuations.
