Question for all the experts out there. As my sig states, I have a variety of fish (some of which will be moving soon). The white clouds, pygmy cories, shrimp and snails will be staying at the very least. The white clouds prefer colder temps (72 is generally regarded as top of the comfortable range), the pygmies have that as a minimum. I plan on keeping it around the 72 range.
Question is this all right for the snails, shrimp and plants? I have no idea what temp the plants want.

Let me say that I keep White Clouds at 76 degrees and they are healthy and happy, evan though they can tolerate lower temps.

Tanichthys albonubes, the White Cloud Mountain minnow are quite resilient with regard to temperature. I keep them anywhere between 18-30C (65-86F). Generally speaking, I try and keep the tanks I maintain at 24-26C (75-79F).

This time of year is great (in East Coast North America). But in the summer it's hard to keep the water temperature below 30C.
