How much of a temperature change can a cow fish handel?

As the topic implys; what is the lowest possible temperature that a cow fish can live in? I just had my heater break and have no way of keeping the water at 80 until tomorrow. Any help? Thanks

You can't strap any heat packs or anything [ you know, like the kind you tape across your back for pain? ] to the glass?

well, room ambient temp will be the biggest factor on how cold your tank gets... So just leave the heater running real high in the room until tomarrow.. ?

As stated, crank up the heat in the room.....go get heat packs or a hot water bottle.....warm up water in containers and float them in the tank....or something similar or risk most likely losing the fish.
